1To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:7All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;8The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.9O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

How Majestic Is Your Name
1To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. (Ex 34:5; Ps 81:1; Ps 84:1; Ps 113:4; Ps 148:13; Isa 12:4)2Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. (Ps 44:16; Jer 16:19; Mt 11:25; Mt 21:16; 1Co 1:27)3When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, (Ge 1:16; Ex 8:19; Ex 31:18; Ps 111:2)4what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? (Ge 8:1; Ge 21:1; Ge 50:24; Job 7:17; Job 25:6; Ps 65:9; Ps 80:17; Ps 144:3; Heb 2:6)5Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. (Ge 1:26; Ps 21:5)6You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, (Ge 1:26; Ge 1:28; Mt 28:18; 1Co 15:27)7all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,8the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.9O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
