Psalms 8:1-9

For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of David. 8  O Jehovah, our Lord, How excellent is thy name in all the earth, Who hast set thy glory upon the heavens! 2  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established strength, Because of thine adversaries, That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 3  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4  What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5  For thou hast made him but little lower than God, And crownest him with glory and honor. 6  Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet: 7  All sheep and oxen, Yea, and the beasts of the field, 8  The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, Whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 9  O Jehovah, our Lord, How excellent is thy name in all the earth!
