New International Version
2 “Dominion and awe belong to God;(A)
he establishes order in the heights of heaven.(B)
3 Can his forces be numbered?
On whom does his light not rise?(C)
4 How then can a mortal be righteous before God?
How can one born of woman be pure?(D)
5 If even the moon(E) is not bright
and the stars are not pure in his eyes,(F)
6 how much less a mortal, who is but a maggot—
a human being,(G) who is only a worm!”(H)
