Where wast thou when I founded the earth? Declare, if thou hast understanding.
It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a gauze curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in;
How much less man, a worm, and the son of man, a worm!
Jehovah, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him, the son of man, that thou takest thought of him?
When I see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and stars, which thou hast established; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
How much more them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, who are crushed as the moth!
What is man, that thou makest much of him? and that thou settest thy heart upon him?
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Fear not, thou worm Jacob, ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith Jehovah, and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
