Ang Pulong Sang Dios

Salmo 8

Daw Ano Kahalangdon ang Dios sa Bug-os nga Kalibutan

1Ginoo nga amon Agalon, daw ano ka kahalangdon sa bug-os nga kalibutan!
Ang pagdayaw sa imo sang mga tawo mabatian mo dira sa langit.[a]
Bisan gani ang magagmay nga mga bata gintudluan mo nga magdayaw sa imo,
agod mahuy-an ang imo mga kaaway, ang mga kontra nga buot magtimalos.

Kon magtan-aw ako sa langit nga imo ginhimo,
kag makita ko ang bulan kag ang mga bituon nga imo ginbutang sa ila nahamtangan,
nagapamangkot ako kon ano gid bala ang tawo nga ginadumdom mo gid.
Ahaw tawo man lang siya, ngaa ginakabalak-an mo gid?
Ginhimo mo siya nga mas manubo sang sa mga anghel,[b]
pero ginpadunggan mo siya pareho sa hari.
Ginhimo mo siya nga manugdumala sang imo mga tinuga;
ginpasakop mo sa iya ini tanan nga butang,
lakip na diri ang tanan nga sapat:
ang nagalakat,
ang nagalupad, kag ang nagalangoy.
Ginoo nga amon Agalon, daw ano ka kahalangdon sa bug-os nga kalibutan!

Amplified Bible

Psalm 8

The Lord’s Glory and Man’s Dignity.

To the Chief Musician; set to [a]a Philistine lute [or perhaps to a particular Hittite tune]. A Psalm of David.

1O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic and glorious and excellent is Your name in all the earth!
You have displayed Your splendor above the heavens.

Out of the mouths of infants and nursing babes You have established strength
Because of Your adversaries,
That You might silence the enemy and make the revengeful cease.


When I see and consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have established,

What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of [earthborn] man that You care for him?

Yet You have made him a little lower than [b]God,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,

All sheep and oxen,
And also the beasts of the field,

The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.


O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic and glorious and excellent is Your name in all the earth!

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 8:1 Or perhaps to a particular key; meaning uncertain.
  2. Psalm 8:5 LXX reads angels; Heb Elohim is usually translated “God” or “god.” But it can also mean “gods” (with a lowercase “g”) when it is used with reference to the pagan gods of other nations. See, for instance, Ex 20:3: “You shall have no other gods (Elohim) before Me.” Since there are no capital letters in Hebrew as there are in English, the meaning of Ps 8:5 is ambiguous. It may be saying that humans were created a little lower than God Himself, or it may say that humans were created a little lower than the heavenly beings.
