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!
