25 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
Then Bildad the Shuhite answered: וַיַּעַן בִּלְדַּד הַשֻּׁחִי וַיֹּאמַר׃ Bildad. Jb.25.1-6
"Dominion and fear are with God;
he makes peace in his high heaven.
הַמְשֵׁל וָפַחַד עִמֹּו עֹשֶׂה שָׁלֹום בִּמְרֹומָיו׃  
Is there any number to his armies?
Upon whom does his light not arise?
הֲיֵשׁ מִסְפָּר לִגְדוּדָיו וְעַל־מִי לֹא־יָקוּם אֹורֵהוּ׃  
How then can man be righteous before God?
How can he who is born of woman be clean?
וּמַה־יִּצְדַּק אֱנֹושׁ עִם־אֵל וּמַה־יִּזְכֶּה יְלוּד אִשָּׁה׃  
Behold, even the moon is not bright
and the stars are not clean in his sight;
הֵן עַד־יָרֵחַ וְלֹא יַאֲהִיל וְכֹוכָבִים לֹא־זַכּוּ בְעֵינָיו׃  
how much less man, who is a maggot,
and the son of man, who is a worm!"
אַף כִּי־אֱנֹושׁ רִמָּה וּבֶן־אָדָם תֹּולֵעָה׃ ף  
      << | Job: 25 | >>
