The Glory of the Lord in Creation
To the Chief Musician. 8:0 Heb. Al GittithOn the instrument of Gath. A Psalm of David.
1O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
2Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have 8:2 establishedordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
3When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit8:4 give attention to or care for him?
5For You have made him a little lower than 8:5 Heb. Elohim, God; LXX, Syr., Tg., Jewish tradition angelsthe angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
7All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
8The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
9O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
