For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of David.

1O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory upon the heavens.

2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established strength, because of thine adversaries, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

5For thou hast made him but little lower than God, and crownest him with glory and honour.

6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

7All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

8The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

9O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
