King James Version

Job 25

1Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.

Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?

How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?

Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.

How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

New International Reader's Version

Job 25

The Third Speech of Bildad

1Then Bildad the Shuhite replied,

“God is King. He should be feared.
    He establishes peace in the highest parts of heaven.
Can anyone count his troops?
    Is there anyone his light doesn’t shine on?
How can human beings be right with God?
    How can mere people really be pure?
Even the moon isn’t bright
    and the stars aren’t pure in God’s eyes.
So how about human beings? They are like maggots.
    How about mere people? They are like worms.”
