A psalm of David.
8:1 O LORD (YHWH) our Lord (adon)
How majestic is your name in all the earth,
You who reveal your splendor upon the heavens!
8:2 From the mouths of children and nursing babies
you have established a stronghold because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
8:3 When I consider the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have
8:4 What is man that you take thought of him
And the son of man that you should pay attention to him?
8:5 and make him a little less than God
and crowned him with glory and majesty!
8:6 You make him to rule over the works of your hands;
you have put everything under his feet:
8:7 All sheep and oxen,
And also the beasts of the field,
8:8 the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea,
and whatever passes through the paths (currents)
of the seas.
8:9 O LORD (YHWH) our Lord (adon)
How majestic is your name in all the earth
