1Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens.
2Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
3When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?#:4Or what is a human being that you are mindful of him, / a son of man that you care for him?
5You have made them#:5Or him a little lower than the angels#:5Or than God
and crowned them#:5Or him with glory and honor.
6You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their#:6Or made him ruler . . . ; / . . . his feet:
7all flocks and herds,
and the animals of the wild,

and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

how majestic is your name in all the earth!
