Bildad’s Third Speech
1Then#Hebrew “And” Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,#Hebrew “he said”
2“Domination and dread are with him
who makes peace in his high heavens.
3Is there a number to his troops?
And upon whom does his light not rise?
4“Indeed,#Hebrew “And” how can a human being be righteous before God?
And how will he who is born of a woman be pure?
5Look, even the moon is not bright,#Literally “and it is not bright”
and the stars are not pure in his sight.
6How much less#Literally “Also” for a human being who is a maggot,
and a human#Literally “a son of man,” or “a son of Adam” who is a worm?”
