Discussion for Psalms 8

  • Kimray
    This Psalm isn't about man, this psalm is about The Lord Jesus Christ! It is prophetic in nature, It is about the revelation of God to man, through Christ Jesus, for he has declared him! What is man? And the Son of man? These are About Jesus! As said Paul in Heb 2:7, and 2:9, This is Jesus! The Heavens are made wonderfully, but nothing is as wonderful as The Lord!
  • David
    David, the apple of God's eye, his place in the pantheon of prophets and Kings who love the Lord of Heaven and earth is secure. He rebuked his wife Mishal when she scorned his wild devotion before the Ark of the Covenant.."I will praise the Lord as it pleases God. He is in the lineage of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, whose Father was God in that she was with no man. She was worthy for she
  • Phyllis E Johnson
    Psalms 8, is so eloquent as a reminder of the redemption of man at the cross, we have been restored by Our Big brother Lord Jesus. Being a small re-creation of GOD, is priceless. I ask all of you to represent Lord Jesus, is Love, and renounce the barbaric behavior of Satan. Our GOD is spectacular and he wants all of heaven to see his magnificent handy work!
  • A disciple
    "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?" Like the way that the verses about God and His greatness and glory surround the mentioning of man; we find ourselves, a being created to be replications of God, standing now at a distance wondering what we are at all. The Word of God in the Scriptures ALONE has the true record of why we are in this case.

    It is my favorite Psalms. I read it every morning to start my day.
  • James
    God is good it sums up God is bigger than we are through His wisdom He holds all things in the palm of His hands Glory be His forever and ever Amen
