Anyway - another short chapter done! You can still tell it's poetry. And we hear all these objections to faith today. I don't think Bildad should be tidied up.
|וַ֭יַּעַן בִּלְדַּ֥ד הַשֻּׁחִ֗י וַיֹּאמַֽר||1||g||Then answered Bildad the Shuhite and said,||3e||3g||11|
|הַמְשֵׁ֣ל וָפַ֣חַד עִמּ֑וֹ |

He makes peace in his exaltation.
|הֲיֵ֣שׁ מִ֭סְפָּר לִגְדוּדָ֑יו |
וְעַל־מִ֝֗י לֹא־יָק֥וּם אוֹרֵֽהוּ

|וּמַה־יִּצְדַּ֣ק אֱנ֣וֹשׁ עִם־אֵ֑ל |

|הֵ֣ן עַד־יָ֭רֵחַ וְלֹ֣א יַאֲהִ֑יל |
וְ֝כוֹכָבִ֗ים לֹא־זַכּ֥וּ בְעֵינָֽיו
|5||B||Lo, to the moon and it does not radiate. |

|אַ֭ף כִּֽי־אֱנ֣וֹשׁ רִמָּ֑ה |
וּבֶן־אָ֝דָ֗ם תּוֹלֵעָֽה פ
|6||g||Indeed, for the mortal maggot, |
and the child of humus... is a worm... P
