Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the overcomer, for pressers, the psalm of David. Lord, thou art our Lord; thy name is full wonderful in all [the] earth. For thy great doing is raised up, above (the) heavens. (To the overcomer, at the winepresses, the song of David. Lord, thou art our Lord; thy name is most wonderful in all the earth.

(Out of the mouths of young children, who do not speak, but who suck milk, thou hast rebuked thy mighty enemies; yea, thou hast destroyed the enemy and the avenger.) 2 From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.

4 What is a man, that is mankind, that thou art mindful of him; either the son of a virgin [or the son of man], for thou visitest him?

5 Thou hast made him a little less than (the) angels; (but) thou hast crowned him with glory and honour, 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 and thou hast ordained him above the works of thine hands. Thou hast made subject all things under his feet; (and thou hast ordained him over all thy creatures. Yea, thou hast put all things under his feet;) 6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:
7 all sheep and oxen, furthermore and the beasts of the field; (all the sheep and the oxen, and furthermore, the beasts of the fields, that is, the wild beasts;) 7 all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air, and the fishes of the sea, (and all the other creatures) that pass by the paths of the sea. (and the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, and all the other creatures that go along the paths of the sea.) 8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
9 Lord, our Lord; how wonderful is thy name in all [the] earth. 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
