Oh come now Revd Crick, is it possible to leave MT Psa
8:5 “as is”? Or even desirable? Then what have you

To arrive at *meaning* for a biblical text,
interpretation must be employed, right? People have
gone to other HB passages . . . even books to shed
light on MT Psa 8:5.

And a Jew might draw from usage, quotes, and/or
allusions to said passage in the Mishnah, Midrashim,
Targumim, Rashi, etc. Correct? He/she might even dip
into the NT along the way for its say on a text’s
history of interpretation.

How much more Christians!

I understand that you are trying to sensitively avoid
pushing Christian beliefs on a biblical Hebrew forum
open to members of various communities. But where the
NT touches on a topic germane to Hebrew, why take the
long way around? NT evidence is at least that:
