To the chief Musician *upon Gittith, A Psalm of David.
How aexcellent is thy name in all the earth!
Who bhast set thy glory above the heavens.
2 cOut of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou †ordained strength
Because of thine enemies,
That thou mightest still dthe enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy efingers,
The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 fWhat is man, that thou art mindful of him?
And gthe son of man, that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels,
And hast crowned him with hglory and hhonour.
6 iThou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
kThou hast put all things under his feet:
7 †All sheep and oxen,
Yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 iThe fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea,
And whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9 lO Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
