Bildad’s Third Speech

God Is the One To Fear

25 Bildad from Shuah[a] said:

God is the one to fear,
because God is in control
    and rules the heavens.
Who can count his army of stars?
    Isn’t God the source of light?
How can anyone be innocent
    in the sight of God?
To him, not even the light
of the moon and stars
    can ever be pure.
So how can we humans,
    when we are merely worms?
