Bildad Speaks: Man Cannot Be Righteous
1Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:
2“Dominion and fear are with God;25:2 Hebrew him
he makes peace in his high heaven.
3Is there any number to his armies?
Upon whom does his light not arise?
4How then can man be in the right before God?
How can he who is born of woman be pure?
5Behold, even the moon is not bright,
and the stars are not pure in his eyes;
6how much less man, who is a maggot,
and the son of man, who is a worm!”
