Psalm 131
Language: Hebrew (עברית) 

א   [שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:]1
   יְהוָה, לֹא-גָבַהּ לִבִּי--
   וְלֹא-רָמוּ עֵינַי; וְלֹא-הִלַּכְתִּי,
   בִּגְדֹלוֹת וּבְנִפְלָאוֹת מִמֶּנִּי.
ב   אִם-לֹא שִׁוִּיתִי, וְדוֹמַמְתִּי--
   נַפְשִׁי:
   כְּגָמֻל, עֲלֵי אִמּוֹ;
   כַּגָּמֻל עָלַי נַפְשִׁי.
ג   יַחֵל יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶל-יְהוָה-- מֵעַתָּה, וְעַד-עוֹלָם.

Psalmus 130 (131)
Language: Latin  after the Hebrew (עברית) 
1 [Canticum graduum David.] 
  Domine, non est exaltatum cor meum,
  neque elati sunt oculi mei,
  neque ambulavi in magnis,
  neque in mirabilibus super me.
2 Si non humiliter sentiebam,
  sed exaltavi animam meam:
  sicut ablactatus est super matre sua,
  ita retributio in anima mea.
3 Speret Israël in Domino,
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sæculum.
