The fifth book of Psalms, song 131, New English Translation and King James Version

Psalm 131

New English Translation

   A song of ascents, by David.
   1 O LORD, my heart is not proud, nor do I have a haughty look. I do not have great aspirations, or concern myself with things that are beyond me.
   2 Indeed I am composed and quiet, like a young child carried by its mother; I am content like the young child I carry.
   3 O Israel, hope in the LORD now and forevermore!

King James Version

   A Song of degrees of David.
   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.
   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.
   3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.
