4God also bearing them witness , both with signsandwonders,and with diversmiracles,andgiftsb of the HolyGhost, according to his ownwill?5For unto the angels hath henot put in subjection the world to come , whereofwespeak .

Thou madesthim a littlelowercthan the angels; thou crownedsthim with gloryandhonour,and didst sethimover the works of thyhands:8
