Psalm 8

"Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels..." (Psalm 8)
It has been testified, What is man that thou art mindful of him, or the son of man, that thou carest for him? Thou didst make him for a little while lower than the angels, thou hast crowned him with glory and honor, putting everything in subjection under his feet....As it is, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. But we see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for every one....For surely it is not with angels that he is concerned but with the descendants of Abraham...a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make expiation for the sins of the people. (Hebrews 2:6-9,16-17)
