1-2God is powerful; all must stand in awe of him;
he keeps his heavenly kingdom in peace.
3Can anyone count the angels who serve him?
Is there any place where God's light does not shine?
4Can anyone be righteous or pure in God's sight?
5In his eyes even the moon is not bright,
or the stars pure.
6Then what about a human being, that worm, that insect?
What is a human life worth in God's eyes?
