Psalm of Ascent. Psalm 131

1 O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.

2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

3 O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.

On this step, we hear the Levites sing a song of David in which he “briefly testifies that he did not conduct himself with the kind of arrogance and egotism that are generally associated with leadership and author.” (Daily Tehillim)

All who govern are under the ultimate authority of G-D. Israel’s King David modeled the proper relationship of a governor, which is one of being a dependent subject to the G-D of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the Father of Yeshua our Messiah and King.
