{To the chief Musician.
Upon the Gittith.
A Psalm of David.}
Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
who hast set thy majesty above the heavens.
2
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established praise because of thine adversaries, to still the enemy and the avenger.
3
When I see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and stars, which thou hast established;
4
What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5
Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and splendour.
6
Thou hast made him to rule over the works of thy hands;
thou hast put everything under his feet:
7
Sheep and oxen, all of them, and also the beasts of the field;
8
The fowl of the heavens, and the fishes of the sea, [whatever] passeth through the paths of the seas.
9
Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
