What is man?

A similarity that I noticed because of the coincidental juxtaposition of my daily Bible readings:

Psalm 8: 4-5 What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour.

Job 7:17-19 What is man that you make so much of him, that you give him so much attention, that you examine him every morning and test him every moment? Will you never look away from me, or let me alone for even an instant?

And to add into this that the writer to the Hebrews quotes the Psalm 8 passage as referring to Jesus in Hebrews 2:4-8.

I really feel for Job. God gave him a hard time.
