Psalms 131:1

Context
Psalm 131 1 

A song of ascents, 2  by David.

131:1 O Lord, my heart is not proud,

nor do I have a haughty look. 3 

I do not have great aspirations,

or concern myself with things that are beyond me. 4 

1 sn Psalm 131. The psalmist affirms his humble dependence on the Lord and urges Israel to place its trust in God.

2 sn The precise significance of this title, which appears in Pss 120-134, is unclear. Perhaps worshipers recited these psalms when they ascended the road to Jerusalem to celebrate annual religious festivals. For a discussion of their background see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 (WBC), 219-21.

3 tn Heb “and my eyes are not lifted up.”

4 tn Heb “I do not walk in great things, and in things too marvelous for me.”
