THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 8 ©
David extols most highly God’s majesty, almighty power and wonderful government; especially His incomprehensible mercy and grace unto wretched man, in the Messiah Jesus Christ.
To the 1chief Musician upon 2Gittith, A Psalm of David.
O LORD our Lord, how 3excellent is thy 4name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory 5above the heavens.
Out of thea mouth of 6babes and 7sucklings hast thou 8ordained 9strength because of thine 10enemies, that thou mightest 11still the enemy and the 12avenger.
13When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy 14fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou 15hast ordained;
Whatb is 16man, that thou art 17mindful of him? and 18the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him 19a 20little lower than the 21angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thouc hast put 22all things under his feet:
All 23sheep and 24oxen, yea, and the 25beasts of the field;
26The fowl of the 27air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the 28seas.
O LORD our Lord, 29how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
