Tehillim (Psalms) 8
1O יהוה, our Master, how excellent is Your Name in all the earth, You who set Your splendour above the heavens!
2Out of the mouth of babes and infants You have founded strength, Because of Your adversaries, To put an end to enemy and avenger.
3For I see Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have established.
4What is man that You remember him? And the son of man that You visit him?
5Yet You have made him a little less than Elohim,#Or - elohim. And have crowned him with esteem and splendour.
6You made him rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all under his feet,
7All sheep and oxen, And also the beasts of the field,
8The birds of the heavens, And the fish of the sea, Passing through the paths of the seas.
9O יהוה, our Master, How excellent is Your Name in all the earth!
