Job 25

Bildad Says Man Is Inferior

1Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,

“Dominion and awe belong to God;
He establishes peace and order in His high places.

“Is there any number to His [vast celestial] armies?
And upon whom does His light not rise?

“How then can man be justified and righteous with God?
Or how can he who is born of a woman be pure and clean?

“Behold, even the moon has no brightness [compared to God’s majesty and glory]
And the stars are not pure in His sight,

How much less man, that maggot,
And the son of man, that worm!”
