1: (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!
