For the director of music. On the gittith [C perhaps a musical term or instrument]. A psalm of David.
8 Lord our Lord, ·Your name is the most wonderful name [L How majestic is your name] in all the earth [Ex. 3:14–15]! ·It brings you praise [L You have set your splendor/glory] in heaven above [Rom. 1:20]. 2 ·You have taught children and babies to sing praises to you [L Out of the mouth of babies and infants you have established/founded strength] because of your enemies. And so you silence your enemies and those who try to get ·even [revenge].
3 I look at your heavens, ·which you made with [L the work of] your fingers. I see the moon and stars, which you ·created [L established; Gen. 1:17–18]. 4 ·But why are people even important to you [L What are people that you remember them]? Why do you take care of ·human beings [L the son of man]? 5 You made them a little lower than ·the angels [or God] and crowned them with glory and honor [Gen. 1:26–27]. 6 You ·put them in charge of [give them rule over] ·everything you made [L the work of your hands]. You put all things under their ·control [L feet; Heb. 2:6–8]: 7 all the sheep, the cattle, and the ·wild animals [L beasts of the field], 8 the birds in the ·sky [heavens], the fish in the sea, and everything that ·lives under water [L passes/travels on the paths of the sea; Gen. 1:28; 9:1–3].
9 Lord our Lord, ·your name is the most wonderful [L how majestic is your] name in all the earth!
