Chapter 25

New English Translation

   Bildad's Third Speech
   1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
   2 "Dominion and awesome might belong to God; he establishes peace in his heights.
   3 Can his armies be numbered? On whom does his light not rise?
   4 How then can a human being be righteous before God? How can one born of a woman be pure?
   5 If even the moon is not bright, and the stars are not pure as far as he is concerned,
   6 how much less a mortal man, who is but a maggot - a son of man, who is only a worm!"

King James Version

   1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
   2 Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.
   3 Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?
   4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?
   5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.
   6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?
