Looking at the 2nd & 3rd books within the Book of Psalms. This is about nations humbling themselves and trusting God.
"Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
They have all fallen away; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one.
9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 "Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.' 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me, a sinner!' 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted."
For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
