1 Then Bildad the Shuhite an swered:
2 His is dominion and awesome power,
2 he who establishes peace in the heavens.
3 Can his armies be numbered?
3 Upon whom does his light not rise?
4 How can man be righteous before God?
4 How can one born of woman be pure?
5 Even the moon is not bright
5 nor are the stars pure in his sight –
6 how much less man – this insect,
6 the human – a worm?
