Psalms 8

1 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth, who has set thy glory upon the heavens!

2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou have perfected praise (LXX/NT), because of thine adversaries, that thou might still the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou have ordained,

4 what is man that thou remember him? And the son of man that thou succor him?

5 For thou have made him but little lower than [heavenly] agents, and crowned him with glory and honor.

6 Thou make him to have dominion over the works of thy hands. Thou have put all things under his feet.

7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field,

8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

9 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
