Arthur 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."
