Bildad Speaks: How Can a Mortal Be Righteous Before God?
1Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
2‘Dominion and fear are with God;25.2 Heb him
he makes peace in his high heaven.
3Is there any number to his armies?
Upon whom does his light not arise?
4How then can a mortal be righteous before God?
How can one born of woman be pure?
5If even the moon is not bright
and the stars are not pure in his sight,
6how much less a mortal, who is a maggot,
and a human being, who is a worm!’
