1 To him that excelleth on Gittith. A Psalme of Dauid. O lord our Lord, how excellent is thy Name in all the worlde! which hast set thy glory aboue the heauens.
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 beholde thine heauens, euen the workes of thy fingers, the moone and the starres which thou hast ordeined,
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 hast made him to haue dominion in the workes of thine hands: thou hast put all things vnder his feete:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The foules of the ayre, and the fish of the sea, and that which passeth through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lorde our Lorde, howe excellent is thy Name in all the world!
