Psalms 8

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by a stringed instrument. [1] 
 1  O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
  Your glory is higher than the heavens.
 2  You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.  3  When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
  the moon and the stars you set in place—
 4  "... what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?"  5  Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor.  6  You gave them charge of everything you made,
  putting all things under their authority—
 7  the flocks and the herds
  and all the wild animals,
 8  the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
  and everything that swims the ocean currents.

 9  O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
<<  8:<%=ftSC%>TITLE Hebrew according to the gittith.
