CHAPTER 25 The Third Address of Bildad
1. What God is (Job 25:1-3)
2. What man is (Job 25:4-6)
Job 25:1-3. Bildad’s arguments are exhausted. He has reached the end of his resources and Zophar does not open his lips again. Nevertheless Bildad’s final word is of great force and beauty, with deep meaning. He gives a picture of what God is.
With Him dominion is reverence;
He maketh peace in His high places.
The number of His hosts who can count?
And upon whom doth not His light arise?
How pregnant with meaning these four sentences!
Job 25:4-6. And what is man, man the creature of the dust, the earthworm.
How then can man be just with God?
Or he be pure who is of woman born?
Behold for Him the moon hath no brightness,
And even the stars are not pure in His sight.
How much less man, that is but a worm!
Or any mortal man-nothing but a worm!
