For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of David.
Psa 8:1 O Jehovah, our Lord, How excellent is thy name in all the earth, Who hast set thy glory upon the heavens!
Psa 8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established strength, Because of thine adversaries, That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
Psa 8:3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
Psa 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Psa 8:5 For thou hast made him but little lower than God, And crownest him with glory and honor.
Psa 8:6 Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet:
Psa 8:7 All sheep and oxen, Yea, and the beasts of the field,
Psa 8:8 The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, Whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
Psa 8:9 O Jehovah, our Lord, How excellent is thy name in all the earth!
I have emboldened the passage that is often overlooked, or left unexplained to most Christians, perhaps because Paul, an Apostle to the nations wrote and spoke primarily Greek, and so would have referenced the Septuagint and not the Masoretic text, which is used in the American Standard Version translation above.
It is important to understand that concept. No other creation is allowed to make an image of the living God. Not angels, who in Noah’s day left their place and procreated the Nephilim, and brought about the destruction of that world.
So we as humans are just short of God in these things. All the sexual morality of the Scriptures hangs on this concept. Think about it. There is no hierarchy of errors in these things. The error is the abuse of this very principle.
Along these lines, one can better understand what spiritual adultry is, the mixing of things of the spirit, and the things of the flesh. Let those with ears to hear, hear, let those with eyes to see, see.
