A Childlike Spirit

1 A Song of Ascents, of David.O Lord, my heart is not (A)proud, nor my eyes (a)(B)haughty;Nor do I (b)involve myself in (C)great matters,Or in things (D)too (c)difficult for me.

1 {A Song of degrees of David.} 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.

1 A Davidic song of ascents.Lord, my heart is not proud;my eyes are not haughty.(A)I do not get involved with thingstoo great or too difficult for me.(B)

1 LORD, my heart is not arrogant, nor do I look haughty. I do not aspire to great things, nor concern myself with things beyond my ability.

1 Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty; neither do I exercise myself in matters too great or in things too wonderful for me.

2 Surely I have (E)composed and quieted my soul;Like a weaned (F)child rests (d)against his mother,My soul is like a weaned child (e)within 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.

2 Instead, I have calmed and quieted myselflike a little weaned child with its mother;I am like a little child.(C)

2 Instead, I have composed and quieted myself like a weaned child with its mother; I am like a weaned child.

2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with his mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me [ceased from fretting].

3 O Israel, (G)hope in the Lord(H)From this time forth and forever.

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

3 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,both now and forever.(D)

3 Place your hope in the LORD, Israel, both now and forever. A Song of Ascents

3 O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time forth and forever.
