1Bildad from Shuah replied:
2Supreme power and awe belong to God;
he establishes peace on his heights.
3Can his troops be counted?
On whom does his light not rise?
4How can a person be innocent before God;
one born of a woman be pure?
5If even the moon is not bright
and the stars not pure in his eyes,
6how much less a human, a worm,
a person’s child, a grub.
