The Bible in Basic English
Psalms, Chapter 8

   1: O Lord, our Lord, whose glory is higher than the heavens, how noble is your name in all the earth!
   2: You have made clear your strength even out of the mouths of babies at the breast, because of those who are against you; so that you may put to shame the cruel and violent man.
   3: When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have put in their places;
   4: What is man, that you keep him in mind? the son of man, that you take him into account?
   5: For you have made him only a little lower than the gods, crowning him with glory and honour.
   6: You have made him ruler over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet;
   7: All sheep and oxen, and all the beasts of the field;
   8: The birds of the air and the fish of the sea, and whatever goes through the deep waters of the seas.
   9: O Lord, our Lord, how noble is your name in all the earth!
