Tehillim/Psalms 131

O Lord, my heart is not proud nor my look haughty;

I do not aspire to great things or to what is beyond me;

but I have taught myself to be contented like a weaned child with its mother;

like a weaned child am I in my mind.

O Israel, wait for the Lord now and forever.

Tehillim/Psalms 131

Tehillim/Psalms 71.1-3

I seek refuge in You, O Lord; may I never be disappointed.

As You are beneficent, save me and rescue me; incline Your ear to me, and deliver me.

Be a sheltering rock to me to which I may always repair;

decree my deliverance, for You are my rock and my fortress.

Tehillim/Psalms 71.1-3

Isaiah 31.5

Like the birds that fly,

even so will the Lord of Hosts shield Jerusalem,

shielding and saving,

protecting and rescuing.

Isaiah 31.5
