The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Job's three friends now fell silent. They were talked out, stymied because Job wouldn't budge an inch - wouldn't admit to an ounce of guilt. 1 So these three men stopped answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
2 Then Elihu lost his temper. (Elihu was the son of Barakel the Buzite from the clan of Ram.) He blazed out in anger against Job for pitting his righteousness against God's. 2 But Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, became very angry with Job for justifying himself rather than God.
3 He was also angry with the three friends because they had neither come up with an answer nor proved Job wrong. 3 He was also angry with the three friends, because they had found no way to refute Job, and yet had condemned him.
4 Elihu had waited with Job while they spoke because they were all older than he. 4 Now Elihu had waited before speaking to Job because they were older than he.
5 But when he saw that the three other men had exhausted their arguments, he exploded with pent-up anger. 5 But when he saw that the three men had nothing more to say, his anger was aroused.
