Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer, `On the Gittith.' A Psalm of David. Jehovah, our Lord, How honourable Thy name in all the earth! Who settest thine honour on the heavens. 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 mouths of infants and sucklings Thou hast founded strength, Because of Thine adversaries, To still an enemy and a self-avenger. 2 From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
3 For I see Thy heavens, a work of Thy fingers, Moon and stars that Thou didst establish. 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 Thou rememberest him? The son of man that Thou inspectest him? 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
5 And causest him to lack a little of Godhead, And with honour and majesty compassest him. 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 Thou dost cause him to rule Over the works of Thy hands, All Thou hast placed under his feet. 6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:
7 Sheep and oxen, all of them, And also beasts of the field, 7 all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,
8 Bird of the heavens, and fish of the sea, Passing through the paths of the seas! 8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
9 Jehovah, our Lord, How honourable Thy name in all the earth! 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
