Job 32

So these three men ceased to answer Job because he [was] righteous in his own eyes. Then 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. Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled because they had found no answer, and [yet] had condemned Job. Now Elihu had waited until Job had spoken because they [were all] elder than he. But when Elihu saw that [there was] no answer in the mouth of [these] three men, then his wrath was kindled. And 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. I said, Days shall speak, and the multitude of years shall declare wisdom. Certainly [there is] a spirit in man, and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding. Great men are not [always] wise; neither do the aged understand judgment. 10 Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will declare my knowledge. 11 Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your arguments, while ye searched out what to say. 12 Even so, I attended unto you, and, behold, [there was] none of you to reproved Job [or] to answer his words. 13 Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom; it is needful that God thrust him down, and not man. 14 Now he has not directed [his] words against me; neither will I answer him with your reasons. 15 They were amazed, they answered no more; they left off speaking. 16 And I waited, (for they did not speak, but stopped, [and] answered no more); 17 [I said], I will also answer my part, I will also declare my opinion. 18 For I am full of words; the spirit within me constrains me. 19 Behold, my belly [is] as wine [which] has no vent; it is ready to burst forth like spirits. 20 I will speak, that I may be able to breathe; I will open my lips and answer. 21 I will not now be a respecter of persons, neither will I give flattering titles unto man. 22 For I do not know [how] to give flattering titles; [otherwise] my maker would soon take me away.:
