Round Three: Bildad’s Speech

25 Bildad the Shuhite responded:

The power to rule and to inspire fear belongs to him.
He makes peace on high.
Can anyone count his troops?
Is there anyone on whom his light does not rise?
How then can a man be righteous with God?
How can one born of a woman be pure?
If even the moon does not shine brightly for him,
and if the stars are not pure in his eyes,
how much less a man, who is a maggot,
and a son of man, who is a worm?
