Job 25Amplified Bible (AMP)

Bildad Says Man Is Inferior

25 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,


“Dominion and awe belong to God;
He establishes peace and order in His high places.

“Is there any number to His [vast celestial] armies?
And upon whom does His light not rise?

“How then can man be justified and righteous with God?
Or how can he who is born of a woman be pure and clean?

“Behold, even the moon has no brightness [compared to God’s majesty and glory]
And the stars are not pure in His sight,

How much less man, that maggot,
And the son of man, that worm!”

Job 25New International Version (NIV)

Bildad

25 Then Bildad the Shuhite replied:

“Dominion and awe belong to God;
    he establishes order in the heights of heaven.
Can his forces be numbered?
    On whom does his light not rise?
How then can a mortal be righteous before God?
    How can one born of woman be pure?
If even the moon is not bright
    and the stars are not pure in his eyes,
how much less a mortal, who is but a maggot—
    a human being, who is only a worm!”
