Psalms - Chapter 8

1

For the director of music. According to 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

From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.


3

When I consider 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, the son of man that you care for him?


5

You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.


6

You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:


7

all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,


8

the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.


9

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