Bildad Speaks

25 Then Bildad the Shuhite replied:

Dominion and dread(A) belong to him,
the one who establishes harmony in his heights.
Can his troops be numbered?
Does his light not shine on everyone?
How can a human be justified before God?(B)
How can one born of woman be pure?(C)
If even the moon does not shine
and the stars are not pure in his sight,(D)
how much less a human, who is a maggot,
a son of man,[a] who is a worm!(E)


  1. 25:6 Or a mere mortal
