Chapter 32

1


 

  So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he seemed just to himself.  

 

 


2


 

  And Eliu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram, was angry and was moved to indignation : now he was angry against Job, because he said he was just before God.  

 

 


3


 

  And he was angry with his friends because they had not found a reasonable answer, but only had condemned Job.  

 

 


4


 

  So Eliu waited while Job was speaking, because they were his elders that were speaking.  

 

 


5


 

  But when he saw that the three were not able to answer, he was exceedingly angry.  

 

 


6


 

  Then Eliu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said : I am younger in days, and you are more ancient; therefore hanging down my head, I was afraid to shew you my opinion.  

 

 


7


 

  For I hoped that greater age would speak, and that a multitude of years would teach wisdom.  

 

 


8


 

  But, as I see, there is a spirit in men, and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth understanding.  

 

 


9


 

  They that are aged are not the wise men, neither do the ancients understand judgment.  

 

 


10


 

  Therefore I will speak : Hearken to me, I also will shew you my wisdom.  

 

 


11


 

  For I have waited for your words, I have given ear to your wisdom, as long as you were disputing in words.  

 

 


12


 

  And as long as I thought you said some thing, I considered : but, as I see, there is none of you that can convince Job, and answer his words.  

 

 


13


 

  Lest you should say : We have found wisdom, God hath cast him down, not man.  

 

 


14


 

  He hath spoken nothing to me, and I will not answer him according to your words.  

 

 


15


 

  They were afraid, and answered no more, and they left off speaking.  

 

 


16


 

  Therefore because I have waited, and they have not spoken : they stood, and answered no more :  

 

 


17


 

  I also will answer my part, and will shew my knowledge.  

 

 


18


 

  Behold, my belly is as new wine which wanteth vent, which bursteth the new vessels.  

 

 


20


 

  I will speak and take breath a little : I will open my lips, and will answer.  

 

 


21


 

  I will not accept the person of man, and I will not level God with man.  

 

 


22


 

  For I know not how long I shall continue, and whether after a while my Maker may take me away.
