Psalm 8:3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have established;
Psalm 8:4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
Psalm 8:5 Yet you have made him little less than the angels, and you have crowned him with glory and honor.
Psalm 8:6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,
Psalm 8:7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
Psalm 8:8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the sea.
Psalm 8:9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
