Psalm 8

Psalm 8

For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of David.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in the whole earth!

You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
You have made sure that children
    and infants praise you.
Their praise is a wall
    that stops the talk of your enemies.

I think about the heavens.
    I think about what your fingers have created.
I think about the moon and stars
    that you have set in place.
What are human beings that you think about them?
    What is a son of man that you take care of him?
You have made them a little lower than the angels.
    You placed on them a crown of glory and honor.

You made human beings rule over everything your hands created.
    You put everything under their control.
They rule over all flocks and herds
    and over the wild animals.
They rule over the birds in the sky
    and over the fish in the ocean.
    They rule over everything that swims in the oceans.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in the whole earth!

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!
