Bildad Speaks: No One Is Righteous to God

25 Then Bildad from Shuah replied to Job,

“Authority and terror belong to God.
    He establishes peace in his high places.
Is there any limit to the number of his troops?
    Is there anyone on whom his light does not rise?
How can a person be righteous to El?
    How can anyone born of a woman be pure?
        Even the moon isn’t bright,
            and the stars aren’t pure in his sight.
How much less pure is a mortal—who is only a maggot—
    a descendant of Adam—who is only a worm!”
