Psalm 8

 

For the director of music.  According to gittith.a  A psalm of David.

 

 

1                    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 praiseb 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 [c] 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!
