1A song of ascents. By David:
Adonai, my heart isn’t proud;
I don’t set my sight too high,
I don’t take part in great affairs
or in wonders far beyond me.
2No, I keep myself calm and quiet,
like a little child on its mother’s lap —
I keep myself like a little child.
3Isra’el, put your hope in Adonai
from now on and forever!
