14 “People cannot really be pure.
They[a] cannot be more right than God!
15 God does not even trust his angels.[b]
He does not even think the sky is pure.
16 People are even worse.
They are disgusting and dirty.
They drink up evil like water.
New International Version
14 “What are mortals, that they could be pure,
or those born of woman,(A) that they could be righteous?(B)
15 If God places no trust in his holy ones,(C)
if even the heavens are not pure in his eyes,(D)
16 how much less mortals, who are vile and corrupt,(E)
who drink up evil(F) like water!(G)
