English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above 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 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still 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.
3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 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 you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have 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, and also the beasts of the field, 7 all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along 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 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
