A psalm written by David for the choir director, to be accompanied by a stringed instrument
1 Yahweh, our Lord, people all over the world know that you [MTY] are very great!
Your glory reaches up higher than the heavens!
2 You have taught little children and infants to praise you;
they cause your enemies and those who try to ◄get revenge on/get rid of► you to be silent.
3 When I look up at the sky at night,
and see the things that you have made—
the moon and the stars that you have set in place—
4 it is amazing to me that [RHQ] you think about people,
that you are concerned about us humans!
5 You made the angels in heaven to be only a little more important than we are;
you caused us to be like kings [MET] and you gave us splendor and honor [DOU]!
6 You put us in charge of everything that you made;
you gave us authority over all things—
7 the sheep and the cattle,
and even the wild animals,
8 the birds, the fish,
and everything else that swims in the seas.
9 Yahweh, our Lord,
people all over the world know that you [MTY] are very great!
