How Majestic Is Your Name
To the choirmaster: according to The #Ps. 81, title; 84, titleGittith.#8:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term A Psalm of David.
1O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your #Ps. 148:13; Isa. 12:4; [Ex. 34:5] name in all the earth!
You have set your #Ps. 113:4glory above the heavens.
2 # Cited Matt. 21:16; [Matt. 11:25; 1 Cor. 1:27] Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established #Jer. 16:19 strength because of your foes,
to still #Ps. 44:16the enemy and the avenger.
3When I #[Ps. 111:2] look at your heavens, the work of your #Ex. 8:19; 31:18 fingers,
the moon and the stars, #Gen. 1:16which you have set in place,
4 # Cited Heb. 2:6-8; [Ps. 144:3; Job 7:17; 25:6] what is man that you are #[Gen. 8:1] mindful of him,
and #Ps. 80:17 the son of man that you #Ps. 65:9; Gen. 21:1; 50:24care for him?
5Yet you have made him a little lower than #[Gen. 1:26] the heavenly beings#8:5 Or than God; Septuagint than the angels
and crowned him with #Ps. 21:5glory and honor.
6You have given him #Gen. 1:26, 28 dominion over the works of your hands;
# Cited 1 Cor. 15:27; [Matt. 28:18] you have put all things 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,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
9O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
