LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name1 in all the earth! You have set your glory2 above the heavens.32
Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold4 against 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 are mere mortals that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?a95
You have made themb a little lower than the heavenly beingsc10 and crowned themd with glory and honor.116
You made them rulers12 over the works of your hands;13 you put everything under theire feet:14157
all flocks and herds,16 and the animals of the wild,178
the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea,18 all that swim the paths of the seas.
LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!19
