Bildad Speaks a Third Time

25 Bildad from Shuah responded and said:

“Dominion and fear belong to God;[a]
    who fashions peace in his high heaven.
Is there any limit to his armies?
    On whom does his light not shine?[b]
How can a human being[c] become right with God?
    How can a human being[d] be pure?
Behold, even the moon isn’t bright,
    and the stars aren’t pure in his eyes.
How much less is man, who is only a maggot,
    or a man’s children, who are only worms!”
