Psalm 8

MSG 1 God, brilliant Lord, yours is a household name. NIV 1 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. MSG 2 Nursing infants gurgle choruses about you; toddlers shout the songs That drown out enemy talk, and silence atheist babble. NIV 2 From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. MSG 3 I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, your handmade sky-jewelry, Moon and stars mounted in their settings. NIV 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, MSG 4 Then I look at my micro-self and wonder, Why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way? NIV 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? MSG 5 Yet we've so narrowly missed being gods, bright with Eden's dawn light. NIV 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. MSG 6 You put us in charge of your handcrafted world, repeated to us your Genesis-charge, NIV 6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: MSG 7 Made us lords of sheep and cattle, even animals out in the wild, NIV 7 all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, MSG 8 Birds flying and fish swimming, whales singing in the ocean deeps. NIV 8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. MSG 9 God, brilliant Lord, your name echoes around the world. NIV 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
