To the Director: On a stringed instrument.[a] A Davidic Psalm.
Divine Glory and Human Dignity
8 Lord, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! You set your glory above the heavens! 2 Out of the mouths of infants and nursing babies you have established strength[b] on account of your adversaries, in order to silence the enemy and vengeful foe.
3 When I look at the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you established— 4 what is man that you take notice of him, or the son of man[c] that you pay attention to him? 5 You made him a little less than divine,[d] but you crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You gave him dominion over the work of your hands, you put all things under his feet: 7 Sheep and cattle—all of them, wild creatures of the field, 8 birds in the sky, fish in the sea— whatever moves through the currents of the oceans.
9 Lord, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!
