To the choirmaster: according to TheGittith. A Psalm of David.
8:1 OLord, our Lord, how majestic is yourname in all the earth! You have set yourglory above the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have establishedstrength because of your foes, to stillthe enemy and the avenger.
3 When Ilook at your heavens, the work of yourfingers, the moon and the stars,which you have set in place, 4 what is man that you aremindful of him, andthe son of man that youcare for him?
5 Yet you have made him a little lower thanthe heavenly beings and crowned him withglory and honor. 6 You have given himdominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, 7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, 8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
9 OLord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
