Elihu is angry with Job and his three friends.
Job 32:1 And these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. Job 32:2 Then was kindled the anger of Elihu the son of Barachel, the Buzite, of the family of Ram: against Job was his anger kindled, because he justified himself rather than God; Job 32:3 and against his three friends was his anger kindled, because they found no answer, and [yet] condemned Job. Job 32:4 But Elihu had waited till Job had finished speaking, because they were older than he. Job 32:5 And Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men, and his anger was kindled.
Because wisdom cometh not from age, he excuseth the boldness of his youth.
Job 32:6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are aged; wherefore I was timid, and feared to shew you what I know. Job 32:7 I said, Let days speak, and multitude of years teach wisdom. Job 32:8 But there is a spirit which is in man; and the breath of the Almighty giveth them understanding. Job 32:9 It is not the great that are wise; neither do the aged understand judgment. Job 32:10 Therefore I say, Hearken to me; I also will shew what I know.
He reproveth them for not satisfying Job.
Job 32:11 Lo, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasonings, until ye searched out what to say. Job 32:12 Yea, I gave you mine attention, and behold, there was none of you that confuted Job, that answered his words; Job 32:13 That ye may not say, We have found out wisdom; *God will make him yield, not man. Job 32:14 Now he hath not directed [his] words against me; and I will not answer him with your speeches. ... Job 32:15 They were amazed, they answered no more; words failed them.
His zeal to speak.
Job 32:16 And I waited, for they spoke not, but stood still, and answered no more; Job 32:17 I will answer, I also in my turn, I also will shew what I know: 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; like new flasks, it is ready to burst. Job 32:20 I will speak, that I may find relief; I will open my lips and answer. Job 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person; neither will I give flattery to man. Job 32:22 For I know not how to flatter; my Maker would soon take me away.
