David, King of Israel


Psalm 8 - Poem by David, King of Israel

1 O LORD, our Lord,
how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings
hast thou ordained strength
because of thine enemies,
that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I consider thy heavens,
the work of thy fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which thou hast ordained;

4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels,
and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
thou hast put all things under his feet:

7 All sheep and oxen, yea,
and the beasts of the field;

8 The fowl of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

9 O LORD our Lord,
how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

(KJV)
