Psalm 8

How Majestic Is Your Name

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.

1 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your 1name in all the earth! You have set your 2glory above the heavens.
2 3Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established 4strength because of your foes, to still 5the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I 6look at your heavens, the work of your 7fingers, the moon and the stars, 8which you have set in place,
4 9what is man that you are 10mindful of him, and 11the son of man that you 12care for him?
5 Yet you have made him a little lower than 13the heavenly beingsa and crowned him with 14glory and honor.
6 You have given him 15dominion over the works of your hands; 16you have put all things under his feet,
7 all sheep and oxen, and also 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.
9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
