Psalm 8

Your Name Is Majestic


For the choir director. According to gittith.[a] A psalm by David.

The Glory of God Declared by the Heavens
The Glory of God Declared by Children

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Set this glory of yours above the heavens.[b]
From the lips of little children and nursing babies
    you have established strength[c] because of your foes,
        to put a stop to the enemy and the avenger.


  1. Psalm 8:1 Gittith means in the style of Gath. Gath is a city name. It also means winepress. The term seems to refer to a musical style associated with Gath or perhaps to the name of a melody.
  2. Psalm 8:1 The grammar of the line is difficult.
  3. Psalm 8:2 The Greek Old Testament and Matthew 21:16 read prepared praise.
