8 1 The Prophet considering the excellent liberality and Fatherly providence of God toward man, whom he made as it were a god over all his works, doth not only give great thanks, but is astonished with the admiration of the same, as one nothing able to compass such great mercies.
To him that excelleth on [a]Gittith. A Psalm of David.
1 O Lord our Lord, how [b]excellent is thy Name in all the world! which hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth [c]of babes and sucklings hast thou [d]ordained strength, because of thine enemies, that thou mightest [e]still the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I behold thine heavens, even the works of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained,
4 What is [f]man, say I, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than [g]God, and crowned him with glory and worship.
6 Thou hast made him to have dominion in the works of thine hands, thou hast put all things under his feet:
7 All [h]sheep and oxen: yea, and the beasts of the field:
8 The fowls of the air, and the fish of the sea, and that which passeth through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy Name in all the world!
