Bildad Speaks: Man Cannot Be Righteous
1Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:
2“Dominion and fear are with Him;
He makes peace in His high places.
3#Jas 1:17; Mt 5:45 Is there any number to His armies?
And upon whom does His light not rise?
4#Job 9:2; 4:17–19 How then can man be righteous with God?
Or how can he who is born of a woman be clean?
5Behold, even the moon does not shine,
and the stars are not pure in His sight;
6#Ps 22:6; Isa 41:14 how much less man, who is a maggot?
And the son of man, who is a worm?”
