Peake's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 131

Verses 1-3

CXXXI. Rest in God.— The Psalmist accepts the place God gives him: he does not concern himself with “ great matters,” i.e. with high positions or the like. But an explanation recently suggested is also possible. The “ great matters” may be the questions raised by Greek philosophy. Instead of occupying himself with these the Psalmist rests on Yahweh like a weaned child on his mother. Cf. Ecclesiastes 3:21, “ Search not out that which is too wonderful for thee.”
