1. Then Bildad the Shuhite answered:

2. His is dominion and awesome power, he who establishes peace in the heavens.

3. Can his armies be numbered? Upon whom does his light not rise?

4. How can man be righteous before God? How can one born of woman be pure?

5. Even the moon is not bright nor are the stars pure in his sight -

6. how much less man - this insect, the son of man - a worm?

“No tumulto das paixões terrenas e das adversidades, surge a grande esperança da misericórdia inexorável de Deus. Corramos confiantes ao tribunal da penitência onde Ele, com ansiedade paterna, espera-nos a todo instante.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
