Sunday Psalm – Psalm 8

From the Trail by Tommia Wright

From the Trail by Tommia Wright

Lord, our Lord,     how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory     in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants     you have established a stronghold against your enemies,     to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens,     the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,     which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them,     human beings that you care for them?[c]

You have made them[d] a little lower than the angels[e]     and crowned them[f] with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands;     you put everything under their[g] feet: all flocks and herds,     and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky,     and the fish in the sea,     all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,     how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    I’m on my fourth way through reading the entire Bible. This is the NIV version. The translation of the Psalms is a bit lacking in the beauty of the King James version.
