018:032:001
So these three men ceased to answer Job,
because he was righteous in his own eyes.


018:032:002
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.


018:032:003
Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled,
because they had found no answer,
and yet had condemned Job.


018:032:004
Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken,
because they were elder than he.


018:032:005
When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men,
then his wrath was kindled.


018:032:006
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 shew you mine opinion.


018:032:007
I said,
Days should speak,
and multitude of years should teach wisdom.


018:032:008
But there is a spirit in man:
and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.


018:032:009
Great men are not always wise:
neither do the aged understand judgment.


018:032:010
Therefore I said,
Hearken to me;
I also will shew mine opinion.


018:032:011
Behold,
I waited for your words;
I gave ear to your reasons,
whilst ye searched out what to say.


018:032:012
Yea,
I attended unto you,
and,
behold,
there was none of you that convinced Job,
or that answered his words:


018:032:013
Lest ye should say,
We have found out wisdom:
God thrusteth him down,
not man.


018:032:014
Now he hath not directed his words against me:
neither will I answer him with your speeches.


018:032:015
They were amazed,
they answered no more:
they left off speaking.


018:032:016
When I had waited,
(for they spake not,
but stood still,
and answered no more;)


018:032:017
I said,
I will answer also my part,
I also will shew mine opinion.


018:032:018
For I am full of matter,
the spirit within me constraineth me.


018:032:019
Behold,
my belly is as wine which hath no vent;
it is ready to burst like new bottles.


018:032:020
I will speak,
that I may be refreshed:
I will open my lips and answer.


018:032:021
Let me not,
I pray you,
accept any man's person,
neither let me give flattering titles unto man.


018:032:022
For I know not to give flattering titles;
in so doing my maker would soon take me away.
