Psalm 131

Have you noticed how Psalm 131 is a reflection of Psalm 130 (one of the seven penitential psalms)?

"O Israel, hope in the Lord."

One psalm says "my soul waits for the Lord" and the other talks about my soul being calmed like a weaned child with his mother.

One starts with "Out of the depths..." and the other with "My heart is not haughty..."

They shed light on each other.

(The psalms are in the order they are for a good reason; God wanted them that way; they are not just a hodge-podge of poems/hymns.)
