Psalm 8
New Living TranslationEnglish Standard Version
1O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens.1O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.
2You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.2Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
3When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place—3When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
4what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?4what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
5Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor.5Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
6You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority—6You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,
7the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals,7all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
8the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents.8the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
9O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!9O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
