Psalm 8

Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 8

God’s Glory, Man’s Dignity

For the choir director: on the Gittith. A Davidic psalm.

1 Yahweh, our Lord, how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth!

You have covered the heavens with Your majesty.[a] 2 Because of Your adversaries, You have established a stronghold[b] from the mouths of children and nursing infants to silence the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I observe Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You set in place, 4 what is man that You remember him, the son of man that You look after him? 5 You made him little less than God[c][d] and crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You made him lord over the works of Your hands; You put everything under his feet:[e] 7 all the sheep and oxen, as well as the animals in the wild, 8 the birds of the sky, and the fish of the sea that pass through the currents of the seas.

9 Yahweh, our Lord, how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth!
