Job 32


Elihu in Anger Rebukes Job

Job 32:1   Then these three men ceased answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
Job 32:2   But the anger of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram burned; against Job his anger burned because he justified himself before God.
Job 32:3   And his anger burned against his three friends because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.
Job 32:4   Now Elihu had waited to speak to Job because they were years older than he.
Job 32:5   And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men his anger burned.
Job 32:6   So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite spoke out and said, "I am young in years and you are old; Therefore I was shy and afraid to tell you what I think.
Job 32:7   "I thought age should speak, And increased years should teach wisdom.
Job 32:8   "But it is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding.
Job 32:9   "The abundant in years may not be wise, Nor may elders understand justice.
Job 32:10   "So I say, 'Listen to me, I too will tell what I think.'
Job 32:11   "Behold, I waited for your words, I listened to your reasonings, While you pondered what to say.
Job 32:12   "I even paid close attention to you; Indeed, there was no one who refuted Job, Not one of you who answered his words.
Job 32:13   "Do not say, 'We have found wisdom; God will rout him, not man.'
Job 32:14   "For he has not arranged his words against me, Nor will I reply to him with your arguments.
Job 32:15   "They are dismayed, they no longer answer; Words have failed them.
Job 32:16   "Shall I wait, because they do not speak, Because they stop and no longer answer?
Job 32:17   "I too will answer my share, I also will tell my opinion.
Job 32:18   "For I am full of words; The spirit within me constrains me.
Job 32:19   "Behold, my belly is like unvented wine, Like new wineskins it is about to burst.
Job 32:20   "Let me speak that I may get relief; Let me open my lips and answer.
Job 32:21   "Let me now be partial to no one, Nor flatter any man.
Job 32:22   "For I do not know how to flatter, Else my Maker would soon take me away.
