Psalm 8

PSALM 8

The Lord’s Glory and Man’s Dignity.

For the choir director; on the Gittith. A Psalm of David.

1 O Lord, our Lord,

How majestic is Your name in all the earth,

Who have 1adisplayed Your splendor above the heavens!

2 aFrom the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established 1bstrength

Because of Your adversaries,

To make cthe enemy and the revengeful cease.

3 When I 1aconsider bYour heavens, the work of Your fingers,

The cmoon and the stars, which You have 2ordained;

4 aWhat is man that You 1take thought of him,

And the son of man that You care for him?

5 Yet You have made him a alittle lower than 1God,

And bYou crown him with cglory and majesty!

6 You make him to arule over the works of Your hands;

You have bput all things under his feet,

7 All sheep and oxen,

And also the 1beasts of the field,

8 The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea,

Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

9 aO Lord, our Lord,

How majestic is Your name in all the earth!
