For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of David.
1Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.2Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.3When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,4what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?5You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.6You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet:7all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild,8the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.9Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your 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!
