Job 32
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1So these three men ceased to answer Job because he was righteous in his own eyes. 2Then the wrath of Elihu, the son of Barachel, the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram, was kindled; against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God. 3Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job. 4Now Elihu had waited until Job had spoken because they were all elder than he. 5But when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.

6And Elihu, the son of Barachel, the Buzite, answered and said, I am younger, and ye are older; therefore, I was afraid, and I feared to declare unto you my opinion.

7I said, Days shall speak, and the multitude of years shall declare wisdom.

8Certainly there is a spirit in man, and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding.

9Great men are not always wise; neither do the aged understand judgment.

10Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will declare my knowledge.

11Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your arguments, while ye searched out what to say.

12Even so, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none of you to reprove Job or to answer his words.

13Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom; it is needful that God thrust him down, and not man.

14Now he has not directed his words against me; neither will I answer him with your reasons.

15They were amazed, they answered no more; they left off speaking.

16And I waited, (for they did not speak, but stopped, and answered no more);

17I said, I will also answer my part, I will also declare my opinion.

18For I am full of words; the spirit within me constrains me.

19Behold, my belly is as wine which has no vent; it is ready to burst forth like spirits.

20I will speak, that I may be able to breathe; I will open my lips and answer.

21I will not now be a respecter of persons, neither will I give flattering titles unto man.

22For I do not know how to give flattering titles; otherwise my maker would soon take me away.
