You have made them[a] a little lower than the angels[b](A)
    and crowned them[c] with glory and honor.(B)
You made them rulers(C) over the works of your hands;(D)
    you put everything under their[d] feet:(E)
all flocks and herds,(F)
    and the animals of the wild,(G)
the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,(H)
    all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!(I)
