O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name1 in all the earth! You have set your glory2 above the heavens.32
From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praisea4 because of your enemies, to silence the foe5 and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,6 the work of your fingers,7 the moon and the stars,8 which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?95
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beingsb10 and crowned him with glory and honor.116
You made him ruler12 over the works of your hands;13 you put everything under his feet:14157
all flocks and herds,16 and the beasts of the field,178
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,18 all that swim the paths of the seas.
