Bildad’s Third Response to Job
1Then Bildad the Shuhite replied:
2“God is powerful and dreadful.
He enforces peace in the heavens.
3Who is able to count his heavenly army?
Doesn’t his light shine on all the earth?
4How can a mortal be innocent before God?
Can anyone born of a woman be pure?
5God is more glorious than the moon;
he shines brighter than the stars.
6In comparison, people are maggots;
we mortals are mere worms.”
