Psalm 8

This one got finished much quicker than the other ones! Don't worry, that doesn't mean that it is of less importance, but it is a relatively short verse. Even if it wasn't so short though, I would still not have had much to add. It is rather self-explaining for the most part!


1 O Lord, our Lord,
     how majestic is Your name in all the earth!
  You have set Your glory
     above the heavens.
2 From the lips of children and infants
     You have ordained praise
  because of Your enemies
     to silence the foe and the avenger.

God created this beautiful earth that we live on. He even created us! Does he not deserve all our our glorifying and praise? Whether they be young or old, all bow down and worship the King.

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 man that You are mindful of him,
     the son of man that You care for him?
5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
     and crowned him with glory and honor.

In all of His majesty, God still cares for us and loves us. He created the most beautiful and awe-inspiring things that you could ever imagine - stars, clouds, the universe itself - yet we still matter to Him. He raised us up so that we may worship and love Him.

6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
     you put everything under his feet;
7 all flocks and herds,
     and the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air,
     and the fish of the sea,
     all that swim the paths of the seas.

9 O Lord, our Lord,
     how majestic is Yourn name in all the earth!

God made us not only to worship Him, but also to watch over His creations! From land to sea to the air, every creature on this earth, along with the ground that they walk upon, was created by the one true God! Our God truely is majestic and wonderful - just look around, and it is obvious!
