诗篇 8

上帝的荣耀与人的尊贵

大卫的诗,交给乐长,迦特乐器伴奏。

1我们的主耶和华啊,
你的名在地上何其尊贵!
你的荣耀充满诸天。
你使孩童和婴儿的口发出颂赞,
好叫你的仇敌哑口无言。
我观看你指头创造的穹苍和你摆列的月亮星辰,
人算什么,你竟顾念他!
世人算什么,你竟眷顾他!
你叫他比天使低微一点,
赐他荣耀和尊贵作冠冕。
你派他管理你亲手造的万物,
使万物降服在他脚下:
牛羊、田野的兽、
空中的鸟、海里的鱼及其他水族。
我们的主耶和华啊,
你的名在地上何其尊贵!

New Living Translation

Psalm 8

Psalm 8

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by a stringed instrument.[a]

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
    Your glory is higher than the heavens.
You have taught children and infants
    to tell of your strength,[b]
silencing your enemies
    and all who oppose you.

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
    the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
    human beings that you should care for them?[c]
Yet you made them only a little lower than God[d]
    and crowned them[e] with glory and honor.
You gave them charge of everything you made,
    putting all things under their authority—
the flocks and the herds
    and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
    and everything that swims the ocean currents.

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
