Job 25Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Bildad Answers Job

25 Then Bildad from Shuah answered:

“God is the ruler.
    He makes people fear and respect him.
    He keeps peace in his kingdom above.
No one can count his stars.[a]
    His sun rises on all people.
How can anyone claim to be right before God?
    No human being[b] can really be pure.
In God’s eyes even the moon is not pure and bright;
    even the stars are not pure.
People are much less pure.
    They are like maggots, as worthless as worms!”
