Psalm 8 Young’s Literal Translation

God's Glory and Man's Honor

8 1  Jehovah, our Lord, How honourable Thy name in all the earth! Who settest thine honour on the heavens. 2  From the mouths of infants and sucklings Thou hast founded strength, Because of Thine adversaries, To still an enemy and a self-avenger.

3  For I see Thy heavens, a work of Thy fingers, Moon and stars that Thou didst establish. 4  What 'is' man that Thou rememberest him? The son of man that Thou inspectest him? 5  And causest him to lack a little of Godhead, And with honour and majesty compassest him. 6  Thou dost cause him to rule Over the works of Thy hands, All Thou hast placed under his feet. 7  Sheep and oxen, all of them, And also beasts of the field, 8  Bird of the heavens, and fish of the sea, Passing through the paths of the seas! 9  Jehovah, our Lord, How honourable Thy name in all the earth!
