Then thesethreemenceasedansweringJob, because he was 1righteous in his own eyes.
But the anger of Elihu the son of Barachel the 2Buzite, of the family of Ramburned; against Job his angerburned3because he justifiedhimselfa4beforeGod.
And his angerburned against his threefriendsbecause they had foundnoanswer, and yet had condemnedJob.
Now Elihu had waitedbto speak to Jobbecause they were yearsolderthan he.
And when Elihusaw that there was noanswer in the mouth of the threemen his angerburned.
So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzitecspoke out and said, "I am young in years and you are 5old; Therefore I was shy and afraid to tell you dwhat I think.
"I ethoughtf6age should speak, And gincreasedyears should teachwisdom.
"But it is a spirit in man, And the 7breath of the Almightygives them 8understanding.
"The habundant in years may not be wise, Nor may 9eldersunderstandjustice.
10"So I isay, 'Listen to me, I too will telljwhat I think.'
11"Behold, I waited for your words, I listened to your reasonings, While you kponderedwhat to say.
"I even paidcloseattention to you; lIndeed, there was noone who refutedJob, Not one of you who answered his words.
"Do not say, '10We have foundwisdom; God will mrout him, not man.'
"For he has not arranged his wordsagainst me, Nor will I reply to him with your narguments.
"They are dismayed, they nolongeranswer; Words have ofailed them.
"Shall I wait, because they do not speak, Because they pstop and nolongeranswer?
"I too will answer my share, I also will tell my opinion.
"For I am full of words; The spiritwithin me constrains me.
19"Behold, my belly is like unventedwine, Like newwineskins it is about to burst.
"Let me speak that I may getrelief; Let me open my lips and answer.
"Let me now11be partial to noone, Norflatter any man.
"For I do not know how to flatter, Else my Maker would soontake me away.
