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!

詩篇 8

上帝的榮耀與人的尊貴

大衛的詩,交給樂長,迦特樂器伴奏。

1我們的主耶和華啊,
你的名在地上何其尊貴!
你的榮耀充滿諸天。
你使孩童和嬰兒的口發出頌讚,
好叫你的仇敵啞口無言。
我觀看你指頭創造的穹蒼和你擺列的月亮星辰,
人算什麼,你竟顧念他!
世人算什麼,你竟眷顧他!
你叫他比天使低微一點,
賜他榮耀和尊貴作冠冕。
你派他管理你親手造的萬物,
使萬物降服在他腳下:
牛羊、田野的獸、
空中的鳥、海裡的魚及其他水族。
我們的主耶和華啊,
你的名在地上何其尊貴!
