IN A STATE OF PEACEFUL HAPPINESS
PSALM 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.
DEFINITION of CONTENT in a state of peaceful happiness.
ELLICOTT'S COMMENTARY The figure here is plain. It is taken from a baby’s first real sorrow when he not merely feels pain, but is allowed no access to that which was his solace hitherto. He moans, and frets, and sobs, but at last is quieted by the love which is powerful to soothe, even when it must deny.
