Elihu is angry with Job and his three friends.
Job 32:1 So these three men ceased to answere Iob, because he [was] righteous in his owne eyes. Job 32:2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu, the sonne of Barachel the Buzite, of the kinred of Ram: against Iob was his wrath kindled, because he iustified himselfe rather then God. Job 32:3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled: because they had found no answere, and [yet] had condemned Iob. Job 32:4 Now Elihu had waited till Iob had spoken: because they [were] elder then he. Job 32:5 When Elihu saw that [there was] no answere in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.
Because wisdom cometh not from age, he excuseth the boldness of his youth.
Job 32:6 And Elihu the sonne of Barachel the Buzite answered and sayd: I [am] yong, and yee [are] very old, wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion. Job 32:7 I said, Dayes should speake, and multitude of yeeres should teach wisedome. Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almightie giueth them vnderstanding. Job 32:9 Great men are not [alwayes] wise: neither doe the aged vnderstand iudgement. Job 32:10 Therfore I sayd, Hearken to me: I also will shew mine opinion.
He reproveth them for not satisfying Job.
Job 32:11 Behold, I waited for your words: I gaue eare to your reasons, whilest you searched out what to say. Job 32:12 Yea, I attended vnto you: and beholde, [there was] none of you that conuinced Iob, [or] that answered his words: Job 32:13 Lest ye should say, We haue found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man. Job 32:14 Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answere him with your speeches. Job 32:15 They were amased, they answered no more, they left off speaking.
His zeal to speak.
Job 32:16 When I had waited, (for they spake not, but stood still [and] answered no more.) Job 32:17 [I sayd], I will answere also my part, I also will shew mine opinion. Job 32:18 For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constraineth me. Job 32:19 Behold, my belly [is] as wine, [which] hath no vent, it is ready to burst like new bottles. Job 32:20 I will speake, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lippes, and answere. Job 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any mans person: neither let me giue flattering titles vnto man. Job 32:22 For I know not to giue flattering titles: [in so doing] my maker would soone take me away.
