|Jehovahs Glory and Mans Dignity|
|For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of David.|
| ||O JEHOVAH, our Lord,|
How excellent is thy name in all the earth,
Who hast set thy glory upon 1 the heavens!
| ||Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established strength,|
Because of thine adversaries,
That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
| ||When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,|
The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
| ||What is man, that thou art mindful of him?|
And the son of man, that thou visitest him?
| ||For thou hast made him but little lower than God, 2|
And crownest him with glory and honor.
| ||Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;|
Thou hast put all things under his feet:
| ||All sheep and oxen,|
Yea, and the beasts of the field,
| ||The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea|
Whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
| ||O Jehovah, our Lord,|
How excellent is thy name in all the earth!
