Job 25 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Bildad Speaks: How Can a Mortal Be Righteous Before God?

25 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:

“Dominion and fear are with God;[a]
    he makes peace in his high heaven.
Is there any number to his armies?
    Upon whom does his light not arise?
How then can man be righteous before God?
    How can he who is born of woman be clean?
Behold, even the moon is not bright
    and the stars are not clean in his sight;
how much less man, who is a maggot,
    and the son of man, who is a worm!”

Job 27:1-6 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Job Maintains His Integrity

27 And Job again took up his discourse, and said:

“As God lives, who has taken away my right,
    and the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter;
as long as my breath is in me,
    and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;
my lips will not speak falsehood,
    and my tongue will not utter deceit.
Far be it from me to say that you are right;
    till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.
I hold fast my righteousness, and will not let it go;
    my heart does not reproach me for any of my days.
