Bildad Speaks

Then Bildad the Shuhite replied:

Dominion and dread belong to Him,

the One who establishes harmony in the heavens.[a]

Can His troops be numbered?

Does His light not shine on everyone?

How can a person be justified before God?

How can one born of woman be pure?

If even the moon does not shine

and the stars are not pure in His sight,

how much less man, who is a maggot,

and the son of man, who is a worm!
