For the Musical Director;
on an instrument of Gath.
A Psalm of David.
1 O Yahweh, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth.
You have set your glory above the heavens!
2 From the mouths of babes and infants
you have established strength
because of your adversaries,
to silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I look at your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars
that you have established,
4 what is man, that you think of him,
and the son of man, that you visit him?
5 For you have made him a little lower than God,
and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands.
You put all things under his feet:
7 all of the sheep and cattle,
and even the animals of the field,
8 the birds of the heavens,
the fish of the sea
and whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
9 O Yahweh, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
