What does this verse mean? And is it true?

Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:

From John Wesley's Notes:

Job 4:18 - Servants - They are called his servants by way of eminency, that general name being here appropriated to the chief of the kind, to intimate that sovereign dominion which the great God hath over the angels, and much more over men. With folly - Without all doubt, this refers to those angels who foolishly and wickedly fell from God.

Here is the English translation from the Sept. of the passage.

Job 4:18 If He puts no trust in His servants. And if He observes a perverse way in His angels,
4:19 How much more those who dwell in houses of clay? Does not He smite them like a moth?
