Elihu Speaks in Anger1 And they were quiet, and [2three 3friends 1his] no longer contradicted Job, [3was 1for 2Job] righteous before them. 2 [3was provoked to anger 1And 2Elihu], the son of Barachel, the Buzite, of the kin of Ram, of the place of Ausis; and he was provoked to anger against Job exceedingly, because he sentenced himself as righteous before the lord. 3 [2even 3against 4the 5three 1But] friends he was provoked to anger exceedingly, for they were not able to answer contrary to Job; and they established him to be an impious man. 4 And Elihu waited to give an answer to Job, for [2older 3than he 1they were] in days. 5 And Elihu saw that there is no answer in the mouths of the three men, and [2was enraged 1his anger]. 6 And undertaking, Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, said, [3younger 1Forasmuch as 2I am] in time, and you are older; therefore I was still, fearing to announce to you the [2of myself 1higher knowledge]. 7 And I said, [2not 3time 1It is] for speaking; [2in 3many 1but] years men have not known wisdom. 8 But there is a spirit in mortals, and the breath of the almighty is the one teaching. 9 [4not 1The 2long-lived 3are] wise as such; and neither do the aged know equity. 10 Therefore I said, Hear me! and I will announce to you what I know. 11 Give ear to my sayings! for I will speak in your hearing, as far as of which time you should examine the words; 12 and until you shall perceive; and behold, there was no one reproving Job, in answering his words from you, 13 that you should not say, We found wisdom being added by the lord. 14 [3man 1And 2you commissioned] to speak such words. 15 And they were terrified. They answered not any longer; [2were old 3coming from 4them 1words]. 16 I waited, for I did not speak, for they stood, they answered not. 17 And undertaking, Elihu says, Again I shall speak, 18 [3full 1for 2I am] of words, [6destroys 1for 7me 2the 3wind 4of the 5belly]; 19 and my belly is as if a leather bag of sweet new wine bubbling, being tied up; and as if the bellows of a brazier tearing forth. 20 I will speak that I shall rest myself in opening my lips. 21 [4by man 1For 2in no way 3shall I be shamed], and in fact, nor [2from a mortal 1shall I in any way feel shame]. 22 [3not 1For 2I know] to admire a person; but if not, even [3me 1moths 2shall devour].
