To the chief Musician. Upon the Gittith. A Psalm of David.
1Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy majesty above the heavens. 2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established praise because of thine adversaries, to still the enemy and the avenger.
3When I see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and stars, which thou hast established; 4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and splendour. 6Thou hast made him to rule over the works of thy hands; thou hast put everything under his feet: 7Sheep and oxen, all of them, and also the beasts of the field; 8The fowl of the heavens, and the fishes of the sea, whatever passeth through the paths of the seas. 9Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
