Job 25

The Third Speech of Bildad

1Then Bildad the Shuhite replied,

“God is King. He should be feared.
    He establishes peace in the highest parts of heaven.
Can anyone count his troops?
    Is there anyone his light doesn’t shine on?
How can human beings be right with God?
    How can mere people really be pure?
Even the moon isn’t bright
    and the stars aren’t pure in God’s eyes.
So how about human beings? They are like maggots.
    How about mere people? They are like worms.”
