1 The LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth, Who has set your glory above the heavens!

2 From the lips of babes and infants you have established strength, Because of your adversaries, that you might silence the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, The moon and the stars, which you have ordained;

4 What is man, that you think of him? The son of man, that you care for him?

5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels, And crowned him with glory and honor.

6 You make him ruler over the works of your hands. You have put all things under his feet:

7 All sheep and oxen, Yes, and the animals of the field,

8 The birds of the sky, the fish of the sea, And whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

9 The LORD, our Lord, How majestic is your name in all the earth! Psalm 9 For the Chief Musician. Set to "The Death of the Son." A Psalm by David.
