Job 25
New American Bible Revised Edition

Bildad’s Third Speech. 1* Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:

2Dominion and dread are his

who brings about harmony in his heavens.

3Is there any numbering of his troops?*

Yet on which of them does his light not rise?

4How can anyone be in the right against God,a

or how can any born of woman be innocent?

5Even the moon is not bright

and the stars are not clean in his eyes.

6How much less a human being, who is but a worm,

a mortal, who is only a maggot?b
