Job 25
Contemporary English Version
Bildad's Third Speech

God Is the One To Fear

1Bildad from Shuah+ said:

2God is the one to fear,

because God is in control

and rules the heavens.

3Who can count his army of stars?

Isn't God the source of light?

4How can anyone be innocent

in the sight of God?

5To him, not even the light

of the moon and stars

can ever be pure.

6So how can we humans,

when we are merely worms?


25.1 Shuah: See the note at 2.11.
