Chapter 32

1


 

  So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.  

 

 


2


 

  Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God.  

 

 


3


 

  Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.  

 

 


4


 

  Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken because they were older than he.  

 

 


5


 

  When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.  

 

 


6


 

  And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not show you my opinion.  

 

 


7


 

  I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.  

 

 


8


 

  But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.  

 

 


9


 

  Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.  

 

 


10


 

  Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will show my opinion.  

 

 


11


 

  Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst ye searched out what to say.  

 

 


12


 

  Yes, I attended to you, and behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:  

 

 


13


 

  Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man.  

 

 


14


 

  Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches.  

 

 


15


 

  They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking.  

 

 


16


 

  When I had waited, (for they spoke not, but stood still, and answered no more;)  

 

 


17


 

  I said, I will answer also my part, I also will show my opinion.  

 

 


18


 

  For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constraineth me.  

 

 


19


 

  Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.  

 

 


20


 

  I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.  

 

 


21


 

  Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles to man.  

 

 


22


 

  For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing, my Maker would soon take me away.
