For the music leader. According to the Gittith. A psalm of David.
1Lord, our Lord, how majestic
is your name throughout the earth!
You made your glory higher than heaven!#Correction; Heb uncertain
2From the mouths of nursing babies
you have laid a strong foundation
because of your foes,
in order to stop vengeful enemies.
3When I look up at your skies,
at what your fingers made—
the moon and the stars
that you set firmly in place—
4what are human beings
that you think about them;
what are human beings
that you pay attention to them?
5You’ve made them only slightly less than divine,
crowning them with glory and grandeur.
6You’ve let them rule over your handiwork,
putting everything under their feet—
7all sheep and all cattle,
the wild animals too,
8the birds in the sky,
the fish of the ocean,
everything that travels the pathways of the sea.
9Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name throughout the earth!
