Job 25

Bildad Says Man Is Inferior

25 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,

“Dominion and awe belong to God;
He establishes peace and order in His high places.
“Is there any number to His [vast celestial] armies?
And upon whom does His light not rise?
“How then can man be justified and righteous with God?
Or how can he who is born of a woman be pure and clean?(A)
“Behold, even the moon has no brightness [compared to God’s majesty and glory]
And the stars are not pure in His sight,
How much less man, that maggot,
And the son of man, that worm!”
