Bible Commentary for Psalms 8:9

Discussion for Psalms 8:9

  • Sunday Alaka Ogechi on Psalms 8:9
    The Apostle Paul quoted this passage in 1 Corinthians 15:27. Paul quoted it in much the same way that the writer of Hebrews did in Hebrews 2:5-9, showing that this promise of dominion is now only incompletely fulfilled among men. Yet it will be ultimately fulfilled in Jesus, the ultimate Man, and will be one day also completely fulfilled in His resurrected followers. In light of all this, it is a great tragedy when a man is captured and held in bondage by the things of this world. We were born to have dominion over such material things, instead of being in bondage to them. O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth: When David thought about how vast a dominion God had given to man, it made him praise God all over again. That this humble creature - humble in light of the majesty of the universe, humble in light of its present standing under angelic beings - should be given such authority is a demonstration of both the excellence and the goodness of God.
  • MockingBird on Psalms 8:9
    The Name of the Lord is Great and He is Greatly to be Praised. He is my Lord and His name is great in me. In the earth refers to me because I am made from earth. Praise God for His Wonderful name !!!!!
