1 LORD, our Lord, ¶ how majestic is your name in all the earth! ¶ You have set your glory ¶ in the heavens.
2 Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, ¶ to silence the foe and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, ¶ the moon and the stars, ¶ which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? [^1]
5 You have made them [^2] a little lower than the angels [^3] and crowned them [^4] with glory and honor.
6 You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their [^5] feet:
7 all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild,
8 the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, ¶ all that swim the paths of the seas.
9 LORD, our Lord, ¶ how majestic is your name in all the earth!
