Psalms 8 (asv)

Psalms 8 (asv)

For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of David.

8:1O Jehovah, our Lord, How excellent is thy name in all the earth,

Who hast set thy glory upon the heavens!

8:2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established strength,

Because of thine adversaries,

That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

8:3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,

The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

8:4What is man, that thou art mindful of him?

And the son of man, that thou visitest him?

8:5For thou hast made him but little lower than God,

And crownest him with glory and honor.

8:6Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;

Thou hast put all things under his feet:

8:7All sheep and oxen,

Yea, and the beasts of the field,

8:8The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,

Whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

8:9O Jehovah, our Lord,

How excellent is thy name in all the earth!
