New International Version
How great is God--beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out.
King James Bible
Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.
Darby Bible Translation
Lo, God is great, and we comprehend [him] not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.
World English Bible

Job 36:26 Parallel

These three propositions are an ample foundation for endless disquisition. As to paraphrase and comment, they need none in this place; they are too profound, comprehensive, and sublime.

You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end."
Are your days like those of a mortal or your years like those of a strong man,
"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
All humanity has seen it; mortals gaze on it from afar.
"He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams;
The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress.
