25 And Bilʹdad+ the Shuʹhite proceeded to answer and say: 2 “Rulership and dreadfulness are with him;+He is making peace on his heights. 3 Is there any number to his troops?And upon whom does his light not rise? 4 So how can mortal man* be in the right before God,*+Or how can one born of a woman be clean?+ 5 Look! There is even the moon, and it is not bright;And the stars themselves have not proved clean in his eyes. 6 How much less so mortal man, who is a maggot,And a son of man,* who is a worm!”+
