Elihu is angry with Job and his three friends.
Job 32:1 So these thre men wolde stryue no more with Iob, because he helde hym selfe a ryghteous man. Job 32:2 But Elihu the sonne of Barachell the Bussyte of the kynred of Ram, was very sore displeased at Iob, because he called hym selfe iust before God. Job 32:3 And with Iobs thre frendes he was angry also, because they had founde no reasonable answere to ouercome Iob. Job 32:4 Now taried Elihu, tyll they had ended theyr communicacion with Iob, for why, they were elder then he. Job 32:5 So when Elihu the sonne of Barachel the Bussyte sawe, that these thre men were not able to make Iob answere, he was myscontent:
Because wisdom cometh not from age, he excuseth the boldness of his youth.
Job 32:6 Elihu the sonne of Barachel the Bussite answered hym selfe, and sayde: Considringe, that I am younge, and ye be men of age, I was afrayed, and durst not shew forth my mynde, Job 32:7 For I thought thus within my selfe. It becommeth olde men to speake, and the aged to teach wysdome. Job 32:8 Euery man (no doute) hath a mynde, but it is the inspiracion of the Almyghty that geueth vnderstandinge. Job 32:9 Great men are not all waye wyse, nether doth euery aged man vnderstande the thynge that is lawfull. Job 32:10 Therfore will I speake also (heare me) and I wyll shew you also myne vnderstandinge.
He reproveth them for not satisfying Job.
Job 32:11 For when I had wayted tyll ye made an ende of youre talkynge, and hearde youre wysdome, what argumentes ye made in youre communicacyon: Job 32:12 yee, when I had diligently pondred what ye sayde, I founde not one of you that made any good argument agaynst Iob, that directly coulde make answere vnto his wordes: Job 32:13 lest ye shulde saye. We haue founde out wysdome: God shall cast hym downe, and no man. Job 32:14 He hath not spoken vnto me, and I wyll not answere hym as ye haue done Job 32:15 (for they were so abasshed, that they coulde not make answere, nor speake one worde)
His zeal to speak.
Job 32:16 but in so moche as ye wyll not speake, standynge styll lyke domme men, and makynge no answere: Job 32:17 I haue a good hope for my parte to shape hym an answere, and to shewe him my meanynge: Job 32:18 For I am full of wordes, and the sprete that is within me, compelleth me. Job 32:19 Beholde, my belly is as the wyne, which hath no vente, and bursteth the new vessels in sunder. Job 32:20 Therfore will I speake þt I may haue a vente: I will open my lyppes, & make answere. Job 32:21 I will regarde no maner of personne, no man will I spare. Job 32:22 For yf I wold go aboute to please men, I knowe not howe sone my maker wolde take me awaye:
