* Alex. + 'for David.'A Song of Degrees.
O Lord, my heart is not exalted, neither have mine eyes been haughtily raised: neither have I exercised myself in great matters, nor in things too wonderful for me. I shall have sinned if I have not been humble, but have exalted my soul: according to the relation of a weaned child to his mother, so wilt thou recompense my soul. Let Israel hope in the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.

*130:1 Alex. + 'for David.'
