Bildad’s Third Speech

25 Then[a] Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,[b]

“Domination and dread are with him
who makes peace in his high heavens.
Is there a number to his troops?
And upon whom does his light not rise?
“Indeed,[c] how can a human being be righteous before God?
And how will he who is born of a woman be pure?
Look, even the moon is not bright,[d]
and the stars are not pure in his sight.
How much less[e] for a human being who is a maggot,
and a human[f] who is a worm?”
