-Bildad the Shuhite answers with some precise thoughts on the holiness and mightiness of God. Dominion belongs to Him. Awe belongs to Him. The LORD establishes peace in His heights. He has limitless resources. His light shines on everyone. There is no hiding from His presence. The Almighty is omnipresent. Bildad asks the question again that Eliphaz previously asked (Job 4:17), “How then can a man be just with God? Or how can he be clean who is born of woman?” This is only possible through Jesus Christ, God’s perfect atonement for sin and corruption. Bildad says that even the moon, which has no brightness (a scientific fact here), and the stars are not pure in the sight of the ultimate King. “How much less man, that maggot, and the son of man, that worm (Job 25:1-6)!”
-*Application* Only Christ can purify mankind and make him what he was designed to be before his Creator (Hebrews 10:19-22). God is in the redemption business (Colossians 1:13-14). We should all be eternally thankful for that precious fact (Colossians 3:15).
