These three men stopped trying to answer Job, because he was so sure he was right.
But Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite, from the family of Ram, became very angry with Job, because Job claimed he was right instead of God.
Elihu was also angry with Job's three friends who had no answer to show that Job was wrong, yet continued to blame him.
Elihu had waited before speaking to Job, because the three friends were older than he was.
But when Elihu saw that the three men had nothing more to say, he became very angry.
So Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite said this: "I am young, and you are old. That is why I was afraid to tell you what I know.
I thought, 'Older people should speak, and those who have lived many years should teach wisdom.'
