Psalm 8

For the music leader. According to the Gittith. A psalm of David.

1 LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name throughout the earth! You made your glory higher than heaven!
2 From the mouths of nursing babies you have laid a strong foundation because of your foes, in order to stop vengeful enemies.
3 When I look up at your skies, at what your fingers made— the moon and the stars that you set firmly in place—
4 what are human beings that you think about them; what are human beings that you pay attention to them?
5 You've made them only slightly less than divine, crowning them with glory and grandeur.
6 You've let them rule over your handiwork, putting everything under their feet—
7 all sheep and all cattle, the wild animals too,
8 the birds in the sky, the fish of the ocean, everything that travels the pathways of the sea.
9 LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name throughout the earth!
