"I have calmed and quieted my soul"

From the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office Lectionary for today:
O LORD, my heart is not lifted up;
my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child is my soul within me.

O Israel, hope in the LORD
from this time forth and forevermore. [Psalm 131, ESV]
