Chapter 25


Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:


Dominion and awesomeness are his who brings about harmony in his heavens.


1 Is there any numbering of his troops? Yet to which of them does not his light extend?


How can a man be just in God's sight, or how can any woman's child be innocent?


Behold, even the moon is not bright and the stars are not clear in his sight.


How much less man, who is but a maggot, the son of man, who is only a worm?



1 [3] His troops: the heavenly hosts, the stars or the angels. His light: compare the wording in Job 24:13: those who are rebels against the light.
