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!

Zabbuli 8

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Zabbuli ya Dawudi.

1Ayi Mukama, Mukama waffe,
    erinnya lyo nga ddungi era kkulu nnyo mu nsi yonna!

Ekitiibwa kyo kitenderezebwa
    okutuuka waggulu mu ggulu.
Abaana abato n’abawere
    wabawa amaanyi okukutendereza;
ne basirisa omulabe wo
    n’oyo ayagala okwesasuza.
Bwe ntunuulira eggulu lyo,
    omulimu gw’engalo zo,
omwezi n’emmunyeenye
    bye watonda;
omuntu kye ki ggwe okumujjukira,
    omuntu obuntu ggwe okumussaako omwoyo?

Kubanga wamukola n’abulako katono okuba nga Katonda;
    n’omussaako engule ey’obukulu n’ekitiibwa.
Wamukwasa okufuga ebintu byonna bye wakola n’emikono gyo:
    byonna wabissa wansi w’ebigere bye,
ebisibo n’amagana ag’ebisolo byonna eby’omu nsiko,
n’ennyonyi ez’omu bbanga,
    n’ebyennyanja eby’omu nnyanja;
    era na buli kiramu kyonna ekiyita mu nnyanja.

Ayi Mukama, Mukama waffe, erinnya lyo nga ddungi
    era kkulu nnyo mu nsi yonna!
