(A)What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You (B)visit[a] him?
For You have made him a little lower than [b]the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

(C)You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
(D)You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
