Bildad's Third Speech
1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
2 "Dominion and awesome might belong to God; he establishes peace in his heights.
3 Can his armies be numbered? On whom does his light not rise?
4 How then can a human being be righteous before God? How can one born of a woman be pure?
5 If even the moon is not bright, and the stars are not pure as far as he is concerned,
6 how much less a mortal man, who is but a maggot - a son of man, who is only a worm!"
King James Version
1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
2 Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.
3 Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?
4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?
5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.
6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?
