Elihu in Anger Rebukes Job1 Then these three men ceased answering Job, because he was a righteous in his own eyes. 2 But the anger of Elihu the son of Barachel the b Buzite, of the family of Ram burned; against Job his anger burned c because he justified himself ▼
▼ Or more than, e before God. 3 And his anger burned against his three friends because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job. 4 Now Elihu had waited ▼
▼ Lit for Job with words; or possibly while they were speaking with Jobto speak to Job because they were years older than he. 5 And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men his anger burned. 6 So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite ▼
▼ Lit answeredspoke out and said, “I am young in years and you are h old;
Therefore I was shy and afraid to tell you ▼
▼ Lit my knowledgewhat I think.
7 “I ▼
▼ Lit saidthought ▼
▼ Lit days, l age should speak,
▼ Lit manyincreased years should teach wisdom.
8 “But it is a spirit in man,
And the n breath of the Almighty gives them o understanding.
9 “The ▼
▼ Or noblesabundant in years may not be wise,
Nor may q elders understand justice.
10 “So I ▼
▼ Or saidsay, ‘Listen to me,
I too will tell ▼
▼ Lit my knowledgewhat I think.’
11 “Behold, I waited for your words,
I listened to your reasonings,
While you ▼
▼ Lit searched out wordspondered what to say.
12 “I even paid close attention to you;
▼ Lit BeholdIndeed, there was no one who refuted Job,
Not one of you who answered his words.
13 “Do not say,
‘ v We have found wisdom;
God will ▼
▼ Lit drive awayrout him, not man.’
14 “For he has not arranged his words against me,
Nor will I reply to him with your ▼
▼ Lit wordsarguments.
15 “They are dismayed, they no longer answer;
Words have ▼
▼ Lit moved away fromfailed them.
16 “Shall I wait, because they do not speak,
Because they ▼
▼ Lit standstop and no longer answer?
17 “I too will answer my share,
I also will tell my opinion.
18 “For I am full of words;
The spirit within me constrains me.
19 “Behold, my belly is like unvented wine,
Like new wineskins it is about to burst.
20 “Let me speak that I may get relief;
Let me open my lips and answer.
21 “Let me now aa be partial to no one,
Nor flatter any man.
22 “For I do not know how to flatter,
Else my Maker would soon take me away.
