Psalm 8

To the Chief Musician. Gittith. A Psalm of David
1 O Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth! You have set Your glory above the heavens!
2 Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings You have ordained strength, because of Your enemies, that You might remove 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 established;
4 what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?
5 For You have made him lacking a little from God, and have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet:
7 all sheep and oxen, even the beasts of the field;
8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea passing through the paths of the seas.
9 O Jehovah, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth!
