Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 O Lord, our Lord, your greatness is seen in all the world! Your praise reaches up to 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 it is sung by children and babies. You are safe and secure from all your enemies; you stop anyone who opposes you. 2 From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
3 When I look at the sky, which you have made, at the moon and the stars, which you set in their places - 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
4 what are human beings, that you think of them; mere mortals, that you care for them? 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
5 Yet you made them inferior only to yourself; you crowned them with glory and honor. 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You appointed them rulers over everything you made; you placed them over all creation: 6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:
7 sheep and cattle, and the wild animals too; 7 all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,
8 the birds and the fish and the creatures in the seas. 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, your greatness is seen in all the world! 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
