Psalms Chapter 8 |
1 For the leader; on the gittith. A psalm of David.
2O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name throughout the earth,
You who have covered the heavens with Your splendor!
3From the mouths of infants and sucklings
You have founded strength on account of Your foes,
to put an end to enemy and avenger.
4When I behold Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
the moon and stars that You set in place,
5what is man that You have been mindful of him,
mortal man that You have taken note of him,
6that You have made him little less than divine,
and adorned him with glory and majesty;
7You have made him master over Your handiwork,
laying the world at his feet,
8sheep and oxen, all of them,
and wild beasts, too;
9the birds of the heavens, the fish of the sea,
whatever travels the paths of the seas.
10O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name throughout the earth!
