Elihu is angry with Job and his three friends.
Job 32:1 And these three men cease from answering Job, for he [is] righteous in his own eyes, Job 32:2 and burn doth the anger of Elihu son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram; against Job hath his anger burned, because of his justifying himself more than God; Job 32:3 and against his three friends hath his anger burned, because that they have not found an answer, and condemn Job. Job 32:4 And Elihu hath waited earnestly beside Job with words, for they are older than he in days. Job 32:5 And Elihu seeth that there is no answer in the mouth of the three men, and his anger burneth.
Because wisdom cometh not from age, he excuseth the boldness of his youth.
Job 32:6 And Elihu son of Barachel the Buzite answereth and saith:Young I [am] in days, and ye [are] age Therefore I have feared, And am afraid of shewing you my opinion. Job 32:7 I said: Days do speak, And multitude of years teach wisdom. Job 32:8 Surely a spirit is in man, And the breath of the Mighty One Doth cause them to understand. Job 32:9 The multitude are not wise, Nor do the aged understand judgment. Job 32:10 Therefore I have said: Hearken to me, I do shew my opinioneven I.
He reproveth them for not satisfying Job.
Job 32:11 Lo, I have waited for your words, I give ear unto your reasons, Till ye search out sayings. Job 32:12 And unto you I attend, And lo, there is no reasoner for Job, [Or] answerer of his sayings among you. Job 32:13 Lest ye say, We have found wisdom, God doth thrust him away, not man. Job 32:14 And he hath not set in array words for me, And with your sayings I do not answer him. Job 32:15 (They have broken down, They have not answered again, They removed from themselves words.
His zeal to speak.
Job 32:16 And I have waited, but they do not speak, For they have stood still, They have not answered any more.) Job 32:17 I answer, even Imy share, I shew my opinioneven I. Job 32:18 For I have been full of words, Distressed me hath the spirit of my breast, Job 32:19 Lo, my breast [is] as wine not opened, Like new bottles it is broken up. Job 32:20 I speak, and there is refreshment to me, I open my lips and answer. Job 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept the face of any, Nor unto man give flattering titles, Job 32:22 For I have not known to give flattering titles, In a little doth my Maker take me away.
