CHAPTER 32.1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. ▼
▼ to…: Heb. from answering2 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. ▼
▼ himself: Heb. his soul3 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 till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he. ▼
▼ waited…: Heb. expected Job in words, ▼
▼ elder: Heb. elder for days5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then 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 was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion. ▼
▼ young: Heb. few of days, ▼
▼ durst…: Heb. feared7 I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom. 8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. 9 Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment. 10 Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion. 11 Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst ye searched out what to say. ▼
▼ reasons: Heb. understandings, ▼
▼ what…: Heb. words12 Yea, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words: 13 Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man. 14 Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches. ▼
▼ directed: or, ordered15 They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking. ▼
▼ left…: Heb. removed speeches from themselves16 When I had waited, (for they spake not, but stood still, and answered no more;) 17 I said, I will answer also my part, I also will shew mine opinion. 18 For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constraineth me. ▼
▼ matter: Heb. words, ▼
▼ spirit…: Heb. spirit of my belly19 Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles. ▼
▼ hath…: Heb. is not opened20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer. ▼
▼ be…: Heb. breathe21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. 22 For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.
