Elihu is angry with Job and his three friends.
Job 32:1 So these three men ceased to respond to Job, because, he, was righteous in their eyes. Job 32:2 Then was kindled the anger of Elihu, son of Barachel the Buzite of the family of Ram,against Job, was kindled his anger, because he justified his own soul rather than God; Job 32:3 and, against his three friends, was kindled his anger,because that they found not a response, and condemned God. Job 32:4 But, Elihu, had waited for Job with words, because the others were older than he. Job 32:5 Howbeit, when Elihu saw that there was no response in the mouth of the three men, then was kindled his anger.
Because wisdom cometh not from age, he excuseth the boldness of his youth.
Job 32:6 So then Elihu, son of Barachel, the Buzite, responded and said:Young, am I, whereas, ye, are aged, For this cause, I faltered, and fearedto shew my knowledge unto you: Job 32:7 I said, Days, should speak,and, the multitude of years, should make known wisdom. Job 32:8 Yet surely, there is a spirit in men, and, the inspiration of the Almighty, giveth them understanding; Job 32:9 Great men, may not be wise, nor, elders, understand justice. Job 32:10 Therefore, I said, Hearken unto me, I will show my knowledgeeven I.
He reproveth them for not satisfying Job.
Job 32:11 Lo! I waited for your words, I kept giving ear for your reasons, until ye should search out what to say; Job 32:12 Yea, unto you, gave I diligent heed,But lo! there was, for Job, nothing to convince, nor could you of you answer his speeches. Job 32:13 Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom. GOD, must put him to flight, not man. Job 32:14 Since he directed not to me discourse, therefore, with your speeches, will I not reply to him. Job 32:15 They were dismayed, they responded no more, they suffered speech to forsake them;
His zeal to speak.
Job 32:16 Though I waited, yet could they not speak, Surely they came to a stand, they responded no more. Job 32:17 I will respond, even Ion my part, I will shew my knowledge, even I! Job 32:18 For I am full of discourse, The spirit in my bosom, presseth me on. Job 32:19 Lo! my bosom, is like wine not opened, Like new wineskins, it will burst. Job 32:20 I will speak, that I may freely breathe, I will open my lips and respond. Job 32:21 Let me be partial to no man, and, unto no son of earth, give flattering titles, Job 32:22 Surely I know not how to give flattering titles, How soon might my Maker take me away!
