David, professing his humility,
Psalms 131:1 A gradual canticle of David. Lord, my heart is not exalted: nor are my eyes lofty. Neither have I walked in great matters, nor in wonderful things above me. Psalms 131:2 If I was not humbly minded, but exalted my soul: As a child that is weaned is towards his mother, so reward in my soul.
exhorteth Israel to hope in God.
Psalms 131:3 Let Israel hope in the Lord, from henceforth now and for ever.
