Bildad Speaks: How Can a Mortal Be Righteous Before God?
1Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
2"Dominion and fear are with God;a
he makes peace in his high heaven.
3Is there any number to his armies?
Upon whom does his light not arise?
4How then can man be righteous before God?
How can he who is born of woman be clean?
5Behold, even the moon is not bright
and the stars are not clean in his sight;
6how much less man, who is a maggot,
and the son of man, who is a worm!"
