Psalm 8:1–9

Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your namem in all the earth!

You have set your gloryn

in the heavens.o

Through the praise of children and infants

you have established a strongholdp against your enemies,

to silence the foeq and the avenger.

When I consider your heavens,r

the work of your fingers,s

the moon and the stars,t

which you have set in place,

what is mankind that you are mindful of them,

human beings that you care for them?c u

You have made themd a little lower than the angelse v

and crowned themf with glory and honor.w

You made them rulersx over the works of your hands;y

you put everything under theirg feet:z

all flocks and herds,a

and the animals of the wild,b

the birds in the sky,

and the fish in the sea,c

all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!d
