Tehillah 8 – תהלה ח

1For the Leader; upon the Gitit. A Mizmor of David.

2O  יהוה , our Adonai, how mighty is Your Name in all the earth! Whose majesty is rehearsed above the heavens.

3Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have You founded strength, because of Your adversaries; that You might still the enemy and the avenger.

4When I behold Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have established;

5What is man, that You are mindful of him? And the son of man, that You think of him?

6Yet You have made him but a little lower than the gods, and have crowned him with glory and splendor.

7You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet:

8Sheep and oxen, all of them, yes, and the beasts of the field;

9The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea; whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

10O  יהוה , our Adonai, how mighty is Your Name in all the earth!

אלַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל הַגִּתִּית מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד.

ב יהוה אֲדֹנֵינוּ מָה אַדִּיר שִׁמְךָ בְּכָל הָאָרֶץ; אֲשֶׁר תְּנָה הוֹדְךָ עַל הַשָּׁמָיִם.

גמִפִּי עוֹלְלִים וְיֹנְקִים יִסַּדְתָּ עֹז: לְמַעַן צוֹרְרֶיךָ; לְהַשְׁבִּית אוֹיֵב וּמִתְנַקֵּם.

דכִּי אֶרְאֶה שָׁמֶיךָ מַעֲשֵׂה אֶצְבְּעֹתֶיךָ יָרֵחַ וְכוֹכָבִים אֲשֶׁר כּוֹנָנְתָּה.

המָה אֱנוֹשׁ כִּי תִזְכְּרֶנּוּ; וּבֶן אָדָם כִּי תִפְקְדֶנּוּ.

ווַתְּחַסְּרֵהוּ מְּעַט מֵאֱלֹהִים; וְכָבוֹד וְהָדָר תְּעַטְּרֵהוּ.

זתַּמְשִׁילֵהוּ בְּמַעֲשֵׂי יָדֶיךָ; כֹּל שַׁתָּה תַחַת רַגְלָיו.

חצֹנֶה וַאֲלָפִים כֻּלָּם; וְגַם בַּהֲמוֹת שָׂדָי.

טצִפּוֹר שָׁמַיִם וּדְגֵי הַיָּם; עֹבֵר אָרְחוֹת יַמִּים.

י יהוה אֲדֹנֵינוּ: מָה אַדִּיר שִׁמְךָ בְּכָל הָאָרֶץ.
