Job 32 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled , because he justified himselfa rather than God. 3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled , because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job. 4 Now Elihu had waitedb till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he. 5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled . 6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said , I am young ,c and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid , and durst not shew you mine opinion. 7 I said , Days should speak , and multitude of years should teach wisdom. 8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding . 9 Great men are not always wise : neither do the aged understand judgment. 10 Therefore I said , Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion. 11 Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons,d whilst ye searched out what to say. 12 Yea, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words: 13 Lest ye should say , We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down , not man. 14 Now he hath not directede his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches. 15 They were amazed , they answered no more: they left off speaking. 16 When I had waited , (for they spake not, but stood still , and answered no more;) 17 I said, I will answer also my part, I also will shew mine opinion. 18 For I am full of matter,f the spirit within me constraineth me. 19 Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent ; it is ready to burst like new bottles. 20 I will speak , that I may be refreshed : I will open my lips and answer . 21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. 22 For I know not to give flattering titles ; in so doing my maker would soon take me away .
