To the Chief Musician. 1On the Instrument of Gath. A Psalm of David.
How aexcellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have bset Your glory above the heavens!
2 cOut of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have 2ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence dthe enemy and the avenger.
3 When I econsider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 fWhat is man that You are mindful of him,
5 For You have made him a little lower than 4the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 hYou have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
iYou have put all things under his feet,
Even the beasts of the field,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
9 jO Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
