25 Then Bildad the Shuhite responded.

Bildad: God rules over all things;
        dread is His domain,
    God—who makes peace and order on His own heights.
    As for His armies, can they even be counted?
        As for His light, is anyone not illuminated?
    Then tell me how can a person be right with God?
        How can someone born of a woman in blood be pure?
    If even the moon is not bright enough
        and the light of the stars is not pure in His estimation,
    How much less so a human,
        who is a mere worm—
    The offspring of humanity,
        who is a maggot!
