What Is Man That You Are Mindful Of Him?

A setting last quarter crescent moon and the thin line of Earth's atmosphere.

____________________O LORD, our Lord,
___________________________ how majestic is your name in all the earth!
____________________ You have set your glory above the heavens.
___________________________ Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
____________________ You have established strength because of your foes,
___________________________ to still the enemy and the avenger.

Earth and the Moon from 114 million miles away.

____________________When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
___________________________the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
____________________what is man that you are mindful of him,
___________________________and the son of man that you care for him?

____________________Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
___________________________and crowned him with glory and honor.
____________________You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
___________________________you have put all things under his feet,
____________________all sheep and oxen,
___________________________and also the beasts of the field,
____________________the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
___________________________whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
