1For the leader. On the gittit. A psalm of David:
2Adonai! Our Lord! How glorious
is your name throughout the earth!
The fame of your majesty
spreads even above the heavens!
3From the mouths of babies and infants at the breast
you established strength because of your foes,
in order that you might silence
the enemy and the avenger.
4When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and stars that you set in place —
5what are mere mortals, that you concern yourself with them;
humans, that you watch over them with such care?
6You made him but little lower than the angels,
you crowned him with glory and honor,
7you had him rule what your hands made,
you put everything under his feet —
8sheep and oxen, all of them,
also the animals in the wilds,
9the birds in the air, the fish in the sea,
whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
10Adonai! Our Lord! How glorious
is your name throughout the earth!
