Psalm 8


Rejoice, God is superb;

the whole universe is marveling

at his limitless grandeur.

For the director of music. For gittith. A Psalm of David.

Lord, our Lord,
      how majestic is your name in the whole earth!
   You have made your glory
      higher than the heavens.
2 You have made sure that children
      and infants praise you.
   You have done it because of your enemies.
      You have done it to put a stop to their talk.
3 I think about the heavens.
      I think about what your fingers have created.
   I think about the moon and stars
      that you have set in place.
4 What is a human being that you think about him?
      What is a son of man that you take care of him?
5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings.
      You placed on him a crown of glory and honour.
6 You made human beings the rulers over all that your hands have created.
      You put everything under their control.
7 They rule over all flocks and herds
      and over the wild animals.
8 They rule over the birds of the air
      and over the fish in the ocean.
      They rule over everything that swims in the oceans.
9 Lord, our Lord,
      how majestic is your name in the whole earth!
