From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praisea1 because of your enemies, to silence the foe2 and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,3 the work of your fingers,4 the moon and the stars,5 which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?65
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beingsb7 and crowned him with glory and honor.86
You made him ruler9 over the works of your hands;10 you put everything under his feet:11127
all flocks and herds,13 and the beasts of the field,148
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,15 all that swim the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!16
