A Song of degrees of David.

Psalm 131:1 LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.

too high for me. There are “great matters” in the spiritual realm that, even for a mature believer, must be acknowledged humbly as “too high” for us to understand until the Lord comes (note Psalm 139:6).

Psalm 131:2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.

Psalm 131:3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.
