Psalms 8

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO THE GITTITH. A PSALM OF DAVID. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.

2

Out of the mouth of babes and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.

3

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

4

what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

5

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.

6

You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,

7

all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,

8

the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

9

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
