What is man
What was weak man, that thou shouldst make mention of him? or the son of the earthborn, that thou shouldst set him in charge?
O Yahweh! what is the earthborn, And yet thou hast acknowledged him, - the son of a mortal, And yet thou hast taken account of him:
But one somewhere hath borne witness, saying - What is man, that thou shouldst make mention of him? Or the son of man, that thou shouldst put him in charge?
Am, I, a sea, or a sea-monster, - That thou shouldst set over me a watch?
1 Samuel 24:14
After whom, hath the king of Israel come forth? After whom, art thou in pursuit? After a dead dog! after a single flea!
If he should set against him his heart, His spirit and his inspiration, unto himself he should withdraw.
