Psalm 8
New American Standard Bible►► 

The LORD’S Glory and Mankind’s Dignity.

For the music director; on the Gittith. A Psalm of David.

1LORD, our Lord,

How majestic is Your name in all the earth,

You who have [a]displayed Your splendor above the heavens!

2From the mouths of infants and nursing babies You have established [b]strength

Because of Your enemies,

To do away with the enemy and the revengeful.

3When I [c]consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,

The moon and the stars, which You have set in place;

4What is man that You think of him,

And a son of man that You are concerned about him?

5Yet You have made him a little lower than [d]God,

And You crown him with glory and majesty!

6You have him rule over the works of Your hands;

You have put everything under his feet,

7All sheep and oxen,

And also the animals of the field,

8The birds of the sky, and the fish of the sea,

Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

9LORD, our Lord,

How majestic is Your name in all the earth!

[a] 1 Lit put
[b] 2 Or a strength
[c] 3 Or see
[d] 5 LXX angels
