Job 321 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 family 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 to speak unto Job, because they were elder than he. ▼
▼ 1) Heb waited for Job with words5 And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, 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 held back, and durst not show you mine opinion. 7 I said, Days should speak, And multitude of years should teach wisdom. 8 But there is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty giveth them understanding. 9 It is not the great that are wise, Nor the aged that understand justice. 10 Therefore I ▼ said, Hearken to me; I also will show mine opinion. ▼
▼ 1) Or say11 Behold, I waited for your words, I listened for your reasonings, Whilst ye searched out what to say. 12 Yea, I attended unto you, And, behold, there was none that convinced Job, Or that answered his words, among you. 13 ▼ Beware lest ye say, We have found wisdom; God may vanquish him, not man: ▼
▼ 1) Or Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom; God thrusteth him down, not man: Now he etc14 For he hath not directed his words against me; Neither will I answer him with your speeches. 15 They are amazed, they answer no more: They have not a word to say. 16 And shall I wait, because they speak not, Because they stand still, and answer no more? 17 I also will answer my part, I also will show mine opinion. 18 For I am full of words; The spirit within me constraineth me. 19 Behold, my breast is as wine which hath no vent; Like new wine-skins ▼ it is ready to burst. ▼
▼ 1) Or which are ready20 I will speak, that I may ▼ be refreshed; I will open my lips and answer. ▼
▼ 1) Or find relief21 Let me not, I pray you, respect any man’s person; Neither will I give flattering titles unto any man. 22 For I know not to give flattering titles; Else would my Maker soon take me away.
