Bildad’s Third Speech1
25:1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
25:2 “Dominion2 and awesome might3 belong to4 God;
he establishes peace in his heights.5
25:3 Can his armies be numbered?6
On whom does his light7 not rise?
25:4 How then can a human being be righteous before God?
How can one born of a woman be pure?8
25:5 If even the moon is not bright,
and the stars are not pure as far as he is concerned,9
25:6 how much less a mortal man, who is but a maggot10 –
a son of man, who is only a worm!”
