A Song of ascents. Of David.
1O LORD, my heart is not lifted up,
my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvellous for me.
2But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a child quieted at its mother's breast;
like a child that is quieted is my soul.
3O Israel, hope in the LORD
from this time forth and for evermore.
