Or the son of man, that You think of him?3LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!3 LORD, what is man, that You care for him, the son of man, that You think of him?
4They are like a breath; their days are like a fleeting shadow.4Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.4Man is like a mere breath; His days are like a passing shadow.4Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.4Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.
