Bildad Speaks: Man Cannot Be Righteous

Job 25

1 Then a Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:

2 "Dominion and fear belong to Him;
He makes peace in His high places.
3 1 Is there any number to His armies?
Upon whom does b His light not rise?
4 c How then can man be righteous before God?
Or how can he be d pure who is born of a woman?
5 If even the moon does not shine,
And the stars are not pure in His e sight,
6 How much less man, who is f a maggot,
And a son of man, who is a worm?"
