III. Elihu's answer to Job 32:2—37:24
A. His first correction and refutation of Job 32:2—33:33
Job 32 :2 32:2 And the 1anger of 2Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, was kindled. Against Job was his anger kindled because he ajustified himself rather than God;
Job 32 :3 32:3 And against his three friends was his anger kindled because they had found no answer but had condemned Job.
Job 32 :4 32:4 Now Elihu had waited to speak with Job, because they were older than he.
Job 32 :5 32:5 But when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men, his anger was kindled.
Job 32 :6 32:6 So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said,
I am young,
And you are aged;
Therefore I shrank back and was afraid
To declare to you what I know.
Job 32 :7 32:7 I said, Let age speak,
And let the multitude of years make wisdom known.
Job 32 :8 32:8 But 1there is a 2aspirit in man,
And the bbreath of the Almighty gives them understanding.
Job 32 :9 32:9 It is not the great who are wise,
Nor the old who understand justice.
Job 32 :10 32:10 Therefore I say, Hear me;
I also will declare what I 1know.
Job 32 :11 32:11 Indeed, I have waited out your words;
I have given ear to your reasonings,
While you searched for what to say.
Job 32 :12 32:12 Indeed I gave you my full attention;
But no one here could refute Job;
None of you answered his words.
Job 32 :13 32:13 Do not say, We have found wisdom;
God will defeat him, not man.
Job 32 :14 32:14 But he did not arrange his words against me;
Neither will I respond to him with your speeches.
Job 32 :15 32:15 They are dismayed; they answer no more;
Words fail them.
Job 32 :16 32:16 Then should I wait? For they do not speak,
For they stand still; they answer no more.
Job 32 :17 32:17 I also will answer what has been apportioned to me;
I also will declare what I know.
Job 32 :18 32:18 For I am full of words;
The spirit in my inward parts constrains me.
Job 32 :19 32:19 Indeed, my inward parts are like wine that is not vented;
Like anew wineskins, they are about to burst.
Job 32 :20 32:20 Let me speak, that there may be relief for me;
Let me open my lips and answer.
Job 32 :21 32:21 Let me not, I beg you, arespect any man’s person,
Nor flatter any man;
Job 32 :22 32:22 For I do not know how to flatter —
My Maker would soon bear me off.
