Psalms 8:1-9

(Of the Director; to the Gittith. A psalm of David’s.) 8*  Jehovah, our Lord, how grand is your name throughout the earth, you whose majesty reaches above the sky, 2*  Who out of the mouths of children at play and babies at the breast have laid a foundation of might on account of those who are foes to you, to put a stop to enemy and avenger! 3  When I see your sky, the work of your fingers, moon and stars that you have set, 4  What is man that you should remember him, any of humankind that you should attend to him? 5  And you have made him little short of God, with state and glory you crown him, 6  And have given him rule over the works of your hands, have placed everything under his feet, 7  Sheep and cattle all, beasts of the wilds too; 8  Bird of air and fish of sea, those that traverse fluid paths. 9  Jehovah our Lord, how grand is your name throughout the earth!
