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!

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!
