|Psalms 8 |
1 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have ordained praise because of your enemies, so that you might silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained,
4 What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels, 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, yes, and the beasts of the field,
8 The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!
