in order to silence the enemy and the avenger.
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you set in place,e
and crowned him with glory and honor.

as well as the animals in the wild,
and the fish of the sea
that pass through the currents of the seas.h
how magnificent is your name throughout the earth!
Lit earth, which has set your splendor upon the heavens

Or a mere mortal
LXX reads angels
Or heavenly beings; Hb Elohim
