Fragility of man (Ps 144:3-144:4)

“Yahweh!  

What are human beings?

Why do you regard them?

Why do you think of mortals?

They are like a breath.

Their days are like a passing shadow.”

David wanted to know why Yahweh cared about humans or even thought about them. Humans are like a breath. They are like passing shadows, of little consequence.
