NLTNew Living Translation
3When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place—
4what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?#8:4 Hebrew what is man that you should think of him, / the son of man that you should care for him?
5Yet you made them only a little lower than God#8:5a Or Yet you made them only a little lower than the angels; Hebrew reads Yet you made him [i.e., man] a little lower than Elohim.
and crowned them#8:5b Hebrew him [i.e., man]; similarly in 8:6. with glory and honor.
6You gave them charge of everything you made,
putting all things under their authority—
