The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, I'm not trying to rule the roost, I don't want to be king of the mountain. I haven't meddled where I have no business or fantasized grandiose plans. 1 My heart is not proud, O LORD, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me.
2 I've kept my feet on the ground, I've cultivated a quiet heart. Like a baby content in its mother's arms, my soul is a baby content. 2 But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 Wait, Israel, for God. Wait with hope. Hope now; hope always! 3 O Israel, put your hope in the LORD both now and forevermore.
