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 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!
