Psalm 8

A messianic psalm of David—He says that babes and children praise the Lord—He asks, What is man, that Thou art mindful of him?

To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David.

1 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

2 Out of the mouth of ababes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I aconsider thy bheavens, the cwork of thy fingers, the dmoon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

4 What is aman, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou bvisitest him?

5 For thou hast made him a little alower than the bangels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

6 Thou madest him to have adominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

7 All asheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

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