NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

Job 25:1-6

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • Bildad’s third speech (1-6)

    • ‘How can man be innocent before God?’ (4)

    • Claims that man’s integrity is in vain (5, 6)

25  Bilʹdad+ the Shuʹhite said in reply:   “Rulership and fearsome might are his; He establishes peace in heaven.*   Can his troops be numbered? Upon whom does his light not rise?   So how can mortal man be righteous before God,+ Or how can one born of a woman be innocent?*+   Even the moon is not bright And the stars are not pure in his eyes,   How much less so mortal man, who is a maggot, And a son of man, who is a worm!”
