Hebrews 2:6-8; Psalm 144:3; Job 7:17; Job 25:6

It has been testified somewhere,

mWhat is man, that you are mindful of him,

or the son of man, that you care for him?

You made him for a little while lower than the angels;

you have crowned him with glory and honor,1

putting everything in subjection under his feet.

Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, nwe do not yet see everything in subjection to him.


O Lord, nwhat is man that you oregard him,

or the son of man that you think of him?


17  uWhat is man, that you make so much of him,

and that you set your heart on him,


uhow much less man, who is va maggot,

and wthe son of man, who is a worm!
