World English Bible
Psalms, Chapter 8

   1: (For the Chief Musician; on an instrument of Gath. A Psalm by David.) Yahweh, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth, Who has set your glory above the heavens!
   2: From the lips of babes and infants you have established strength, Because of your adversaries, that you might silence the enemy and the avenger.
   3: When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, The moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
   4: What is man, that you think of him? The son of man, that you care for him?
   5: For you have made him a little lower than God, And crowned him with glory and honor.
   6: You make him ruler over the works of your hands. You have put all things under his feet:
   7: All sheep and oxen, Yes, and the animals of the field,
   8: The birds of the sky, the fish of the sea, And whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
   9: Yahweh, our Lord, How majestic is your name in all the earth!
