Psalms 8

Psalm 8

God's Glory and Human Dignity

1  [fn] O Lord, our Lord, your greatness is seen in all the world! Your praise reaches up to the heavens;
2 it is sung by children and babies. You are safe and secure from all your enemies; you stop anyone who opposes you. [xr].

3 When I look at the sky, which you have made, at the moon and the stars, which you set in their places—
4 what are human beings, that you think of them; mere mortals, that you care for them? [xr]; Psalms 144:3; Hebrews 2:6-8.

5 Yet you made them inferior only to yourself; [fn] you crowned them with glory and honor. [fn]
6 You appointed them rulers over everything you made; you placed them over all creation: [xr]; Ephesians 1:22; Hebrews 2:8.
7 sheep and cattle, and the wild animals too;
8 the birds and the fish and the creatures in the seas.

9 O Lord, our Lord, your greatness is seen in all the world!
