1 To the overseer upon the stringed instrument, chanting of David. O Jehovah our Lord, how mighty thy name in all the earth! who will set thy majesty over the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of children and sucklings thou hast founded strength on account of thine enemies, to cause the enemy and the avenger to cease.
3 For I shall see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers; the moon and the stars which thou didst prepare. 4 What is man that thou wilt remember him? and the son of man that thou wilt review him? 5 And thou wilt diminish him a little more than the messengers, and thou wilt surround him with glory and honor. 6 And thou wilt give him dominion over the works of thy hands; thou didst put all under his feet: 7 Sheep and oxen, all of them, and also the cattle of the field; 8 And the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, passing through the paths of the seas.
