Chapter 8

8:1  O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

1 Gittith= "winepress," and so, of the harvest, in the sense of judgment Isaiah 63:3; Revelation 19:15; Psalms 7:1, to which the title of Psalm 8. properly belongs, is a Psalm of judgment.

8:5  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels

In Psa 2. Christ was presented as Jehovah's Son and King, rejected and crucified but yet to reign in Zion. In Psa 8., while His deity is fully recognized (Psalms 8:1), Psa. 110 with Matthew 22:41-46 He is seen as Son of man Psalms 8:4-6 who, "made for a little while lower than the angels, " is to have dominion over the redeemed creation Hebrews 2:6-11. The authority here is racial and Adamic, rather than purely divine as in Psa 2., or Davidic as in Psa 89. That which the first man lost, the second man and "last Adam" more than regained. Hebrews 2:6-11 in connection with Psa. 8., and Romans 8:17-21 show that the "many sons" whom He is bringing to glory, are joint heirs with Him in both the royal right of Psa. 2. and the human right of Heb. 2. See Psa. 16., next in order of the Messianic Psalms.
