Job 25:1-6,27:1-6

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

25Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
2 ‘Dominion and fear are with God;*
   he makes peace in his high heaven.
3 Is there any number to his armies?
   Upon whom does his light not arise?
4 How then can a mortal be righteous before God?
   How can one born of woman be pure?
5 If even the moon is not bright
   and the stars are not pure in his sight,
6 how much less a mortal, who is a maggot,
   and a human being, who is a worm!’

Job Maintains His Integrity

27Job again took up his discourse and said:
2 ‘As God lives, who has taken away my right,
   and the Almighty,* who has made my soul bitter,
3 as long as my breath is in me
   and the spirit of God is in my nostrils,
4 my lips will not speak falsehood,
   and my tongue will not utter deceit.
5 Far be it from me to say that you are right;
   until I die I will not put away my integrity from me.
6 I hold fast my righteousness, and will not let it go;
   my heart does not reproach me for any of my days.
