The heavens reveal Yahweh (Ps 8:3-8:4)

“When I look at your heavens,

I see the work of your fingers.

I see the moon and the stars.

You have established them.

What are human beings?

Why are you mindful of them?

Why do you care for mortals?”

When David would look to the heavens, he would see the hand work of Yahweh, who had established the moon and the stars. This was the fine finger work of the hand of God. He wondered who are we, us human beings? Why does God care for us? Why is he even mindful of us?
