PSALM 8

« Psalm 7 | Psalm 8 | Psalm 9 »

How Majestic Is Your Name
To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.
8:1
O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
2
Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.

3
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
4
what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?

5
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
6
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
you 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!
