25 The further reply of Bildad the Shuhite:
2 “God is powerful and dreadful. He enforces peace in heaven. 3 Who is able to number his hosts of angels? And his light shines down on all the earth. 4 How can mere man stand before God and claim to be righteous? Who in all the earth can boast that he is clean? 5 God is so glorious that even the moon and stars are less than nothing as compared to him. 6 How much less is man, who is but a worm in his sight?”
New International Version
25 Then Bildad the Shuhite(A) replied:
2 “Dominion and awe belong to God;(B)
he establishes order in the heights of heaven.(C)
3 Can his forces be numbered?
On whom does his light not rise?(D)
4 How then can a mortal be righteous before God?
How can one born of woman be pure?(E)
5 If even the moon(F) is not bright
and the stars are not pure in his eyes,(G)
6 how much less a mortal, who is but a maggot—
a human being,(H) who is only a worm!”(I)
