1 LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! You set your glory above the heavens! 2 Out of the mouths of infants and nursing babies you have established strength on account of your adversaries, in order to silence the enemy and vengeful foe.
3 When I look at the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you established 4 what is man that you take notice of him, or the son of man that you pay attention to him? 5 You made him a little less than divine, but you crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You gave him dominion over the work of your hands, you put all things under his feet: 7 Sheep and cattle all of them, wild creatures of the field, 8 birds in the sky, fish in the sea whatever moves through the currents of the oceans.
