1To the Chief Musician. On the instrument of Gath. A Psalm of David. O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!1For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of David. LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.
2Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.2Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
3When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,3When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
4What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?4what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
5For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.5You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.
6You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet,6You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet:
7All sheep and oxen— Even the beasts of the field,7all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild,
8The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas.8the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
9O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!9LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
