Psalm 8 Revised Standard Version

God's Glory and Man's Honor

8 1  To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth! Thou whose glory above the heavens is chanted 2  by the mouth of babes and infants, thou hast founded a bulwark because of thy foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.

3  When I look at thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars which thou hast established; 4  what is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou dost care for him? 5  Yet thou hast made him little less than God, and dost crown him with glory and honor. 6  Thou hast given him dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet, 7  all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, 8  the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the sea. 9  O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth!
