Psalm 8
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

How Majestic Is Your Name!

1To the overseer upon the stringed instrument, chanting of David. O Jehovah our Lord, how mighty thy name in all the earth! who will set thy majesty over the heavens.

2Out of the mouth of children and sucklings thou hast founded strength on account of thine enemies, to cause the enemy and the avenger to cease.

3For I shall see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers; the moon and the stars which thou didst prepare.

4What is man that thou wilt remember him? and the son of man that thou wilt review him?

5And thou wilt diminish him a little more than the messengers, and thou wilt surround him with glory and honor.

6And thou wilt give him dominion over the works of thy hands; thou didst put all under his feet:

7Sheep and oxen, all of them, and also the cattle of the field;

8And the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, passing through the paths of the seas.

9O Jehovah our Lord, how mighty thy name in all the earth!
