Book 1 – Psalm 8 of 41: The Majestic Son of Man

The Name whom David praises at the end of chapter 7 is thus the object of our faith and trust here. No mere man nor son of man is described – it is the Name of the LORD, the Son of Man, the Angel of the LORD, who is primarily described. How majestic He is, the same Son who is described in the book of Hebrews, who was made a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned with glory and honour. No man can share God’s glory except for the Anointed One, the Son of God whom He has chosen (Isaiah 42), and yet it is the Son who chose to share with us His glory (John 17). His strength is out of the mouth of childlike innocence to still the enemy; the Father’s beautiful creation – the heavens, the work of His fingers, the moon and the stars – were so much a gift for His Son!

So the Son is given dominion over the works of the Father’s hands, putting all things under Christ’s feet (Psalm 2). Indeed – let us praise the Name of the LORD, the Most High – Christ the majestic one who shares the Father’s glory with us, who shares His power and dominion with us, that even all things are put under the feet of Adam and Eve and all of mankind through them.
