25 And Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,

Dominion and fear are with him; he maketh peace in his high places.

Is there any number of his troops? and upon whom doth not his light arise?

And how should man be just with God? Or how should he be clean that is born of a woman?

Lo, even the moon is not bright; and the stars are not pure in his sight:

How much less man, a worm, and the son of man, a worm!


25 Then Bildad the Shuhite(A) replied:

“Dominion and awe belong to God;(B)
    he establishes order in the heights of heaven.(C)
Can his forces be numbered?
    On whom does his light not rise?(D)
How then can a mortal be righteous before God?
    How can one born of woman be pure?(E)
If even the moon(F) is not bright
    and the stars are not pure in his eyes,(G)
how much less a mortal, who is but a maggot—
    a human being,(H) who is only a worm!”(I)
