Psalms 8:6-8

Context

8:6 you appoint them to rule over your creation; 1 

you have placed 2  everything under their authority, 3 

8:7 including all the sheep and cattle,

as well as the wild animals, 4 

8:8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea

and everything that moves through the currents 5  of the seas.

1 tn Heb “you cause [i.e., “permit, allow”] him to rule over the works of your hands.”

2 tn The perfect verbal form probably has a present perfect nuance here. It refers to the continuing effects of God’s original mandate (see Gen 1:26-30).

3 tn Heb “under his feet.”

sn Placed everything under their authority. This verse affirms that mankind rules over God’s creation as his vice-regent. See Gen 1:26-30.

4 tn Heb “and also the beasts of the field.”

5 tn Heb “paths.”
