1 (To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David.) O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. 2 aOut of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still bthe enemy and the avenger. 3 When I cconsider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 dWhat is man, 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 the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 eThou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; fthou hast put all things under his feet: 7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD our Lord, how gexcellent is thy name in all the earth!
