1 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:

2 "Dominion and fear belong to Him; He makes peace in His high places.

3 Is there any number to His armies? Upon whom does His light not rise?

4 How then can man be righteous before God? Or how can he be pure who is born of a woman?

5 If even the moon does not shine, And the stars are not pure in His sight,

6 How much less man, who is a maggot, And a son of man, who is a worm?"
