BibleOld TestamentNumbers

19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

This passage is an example of the usage of Hebrew adam. The phrase translated "the son of man" here is בן אדם (ben adam — see The human race).
