1 Then Bildad from Shuah replied [to Job],
2 "Authority and terror belong to God. He establishes peace in his high places.
3 Is there any [limit to the] number of his troops? Is there anyone on whom his light does not rise?
4 How can a person be righteous to God? How can anyone born of a woman be pure?
5 Even the moon isn't bright, and the stars aren't pure in his sight.
6 How much less pure is a mortal--who is only a maggot-- a descendant of Adam--who is only a worm!"
