Psalm 8

Divine Majesty and Human Dignity

To the leader: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.

1

O Lord, our Sovereign,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!

 

You have set your glory above the heavens.

2

Out of the mouths of babes and infants

you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,

to silence the enemy and the avenger.

 

3

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars that you have established;

4

what are human beings that you are mindful of them,

mortals that you care for them?

 

5

Yet you have made them a little lower than God,

and crowned them with glory and honor.

6

You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;

you have put all things under their feet,

7

all sheep and oxen,

and also the beasts of the field,

8

the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,

whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

 

9

O Lord, our Sovereign,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!
