Psalm 8


For the director of music.  According to gittith.a  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                    From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praiseb because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.


3                    When I consider 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, the son of man that you care for him?


5                    You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings [c] and crowned him with glory and honor.


6                    You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:


7                    all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,


8                    the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.


9                    O LORD, our LORD, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
