Job 25 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

25 Bildad proveth that no man is clean nor without sin before God.

Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

[a]Power and fear is with him, that maketh peace in his places.

Is there any number in his armies? [b]and upon whom shall not his light arise?

And how may a man [c]be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of woman?

Behold, he will give no light to the Moon, [d]and the Stars are unclean in his sight.

How much more man, a worm, even the son of man, which is but a worm?

Job 25 New 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!”
