Psalm chapter 8

Bible Version
Book
Chapter
Commentary
1
[For the choir director: on the Gittith. A Davidic psalm.] LORD, our Lord, how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth! You have covered the heavens with Your majesty.
2
Because of Your adversaries, You have established a stronghold from the mouths of children and nursing infants, to silence the enemy and the avenger.
3
When I observe Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You set in place,
4
what is man that You remember him, the son of man that You look after him?
5
You made him little less than God and crowned him with glory and honor.
6
You made him lord over the works of Your hands; You put everything under his feet:
7
all the sheep and oxen, as well as animals in the wild,
8
birds of the sky, and fish of the sea passing through the currents of the seas.
9
LORD, our Lord, how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth!
