Psalms 8
ICB
8
God’s Greatness and Man’s Worth
For the director of music. By the gittith. A song of David.
1Lord our Master,
your name is the most wonderful name in all the earth!
It brings you praise in heaven above.
2You have taught children and babies
to sing praises to you.
This is because of your enemies.
And so you silence your enemies
and destroy those who try to get even.
3I look at the heavens,
which you made with your hands.
I see the moon and stars,
which you created.
4But why is man important to you?
Why do you take care of human beings?
5You made man a little lower than the angels.
And you crowned him with glory and honor.
6You put him in charge of everything you made.
You put all things under his control:
7all the sheep, the cattle
and the wild animals,
8the birds in the sky,
the fish in the sea,
and everything that lives under water.
9Lord our Master,
your name is the most wonderful name in all the earth!
