A Song of Degrees. Of David

1 O Jehovah! my heart hath not been elated, Nor lifted up have been my eyes, Nor have I exercised myself in great matters, Or in things hidden from me.

2 If I have not framed [or set] and quieted my soul, Like one that is weaned from his mother, — 396396     These two lines which are David’s oath are in the abrupt form in which the Jews were accustomed to swear. Like a child that is weaned is my soul upon me.

3 Hope shall Israel in Jehovah From henceforth, and for ever.
