So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
Then Eli'hu the son of Bar'achel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, became angry. He was angry at Job because he justified himself rather than God;
he was angry also at Job's three friends because they had found no answer, although they had declared Job to be in the wrong.
Now Eli'hu had waited to speak to Job because they were older than he.
And when Eli'hu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, he became angry.
And Eli'hu the son of Bar'achel the Buzite answered: "I am young in years, and you are aged; therefore I was timid and afraid to declare my opinion to you.
I said, 'Let days speak, and many years teach wisdom.'
But it is the spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand.
It is not the old that are wise, nor the aged that understand what is right.
Therefore I say, 'Listen to me; let me also declare my opinion.'
"Behold, I waited for your words, I listened for your wise sayings, while you searched out what to say.
