The Glory of the Lord in Creation
A Psalm of David
O LORD….. Our LORD,
How excellent…..IS…YOUR name…..in ALL the earth,
Who have set YOUR glory…..above the heavens!
2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
YOU…..have ordained strength,
Because…..of YOUR enemies,
That YOU…..may silence the enemy…..and…..the avenger.
(Matthew 21:16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?)
3 When I consider YOUR heavens…..the work…..of YOUR fingers,
The moon…..and…..the stars,……which…..YOU have ordained,
4 What is man…..that YOU…..are mindful of him, and the son of man…..that You visit him?
5 For You…..have made him…..a little lower than the angels,
6 And You…..have crowned him with glory and honor.
(Hebrews 2: 6-8 KJV 6 But one (“David”) in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.)
6 You have made him…..to have dominion…..over the works of Your hands;
(Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.)
You…..have put…..ALL things…..under his feet,
7 All sheep and oxen—
Even…..the beasts of the field,
8 The birds…..of the air,
And…..the fish…..of the sea
That pass through…..the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord, Our Lord,
How excellent “IS” YOUR name…..in…all…the…earth!
