  • Denotes mankind generally, with special reference to their weakness and frailty (Job 25:6; Psalm 8:4; 144:3; 146:3; Isaiah 51:12 , etc.).

  • It is a title frequently given to the prophet Ezekiel, probably to remind him of his human weakness.

  • In the New Testament it is used forty-three times as a distinctive title of the Saviour. In the Old Testament it is used only in Psalm 80:17 and Daniel 7:13 with this application. It denotes the true humanity of our Lord. He had a true body ( Hebrews 2:14; Luke 24:39 ) and a rational soul. He was perfect man.
