PSALM 8[Z] Divine Majesty and Human Dignity 8 1For the leader; “upon the gittith.”[A] A psalm of David. 2O LORD, our Lord, how awesome is your name through all the earth! I will sing of your majesty above the heavens 3with the mouths of babes and infants.[B] You have established a bulwark[C] against your foes, to silence enemy and avenger.[D] 4When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars that you set in place— 5[E]What is man that you are mindful of him, and a son of man that you care for him? 6Yet you have made him little less than a god, [F] crowned him with glory and honor. 7You have given him rule over the works of your hands, put all things at his feet: 8All sheep and oxen, even the beasts of the field, 9The birds of the air, the fish of the sea, and whatever swims the paths of the seas. 10O LORD, our Lord, how awesome is your name through all the earth!
