|<< Psalm 8 >>|
King James 2000 Bible
To the Chief Musician upon gittith.
A Psalm of David.
The God of Creation
1O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who have set your glory above the heavens.
2Out of the mouth of babes and infants have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
3When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
4What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit him?
5For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and have crowned him with glory and honor.
6You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet:
7All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas.
9O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!
