Psalms 131

Overview

Psalms 131:1, David, professing his humility, Psalms 131:3, exhorts Israel to trust in God.

Some think that this Psalm was composed by David when accused by Saul and his courtiers that he affected the crown; though others refer it to the time of the captivity; and consider it as containing a fair account of the manner in which the captives behaved themselves.
