How Majestic is Your Name!1 For the choirmaster. According to Gittith. ▼
▼Probably a musical or liturgical term; here and Psalms 81 and 84A Psalm of David. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! You have set Your glory above the heavens. 2 From the lips of children and infants You have ordained praise on account of Your adversaries, to silence the enemy and avenger. 3 When I behold Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You set in place— 4 what is man that You are mindful [of him] , or the son of man that You care for him? 5 You made him a little lower than the angels; ▼
▼Or than God or than the heavenly beingsYou crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You made him ruler of the works of Your hands; You have placed everything under his feet: 7 all sheep and oxen, and even the beasts of the field, 8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!
