Job 32

RHE 1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he seemed just to himself. NIV 1 So these three men stopped answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. RHE 2 And Eliu the son of Barachel the Buzite of the kindred of Ram, was angry and was moved to indignation: now he was angry against Job, because he said he was just before God. NIV 2 But Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, became very angry with Job for justifying himself rather than God. RHE 3 And he was angry with his friends, because they had not found a reasonable answer, but only had condemned Job. NIV 3 He was also angry with the three friends, because they had found no way to refute Job, and yet had condemned him. RHE 4 So Eliu waited while Job was speaking because they were his elders that were speaking. NIV 4 Now Elihu had waited before speaking to Job because they were older than he. RHE 5 But when he saw that the three were not able to answer, he was exceedingly angry. NIV 5 But when he saw that the three men had nothing more to say, his anger was aroused. RHE 6 Then Eliu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered, and said: I am younger in days, and you are more ancient, therefore hanging down my head, I was afraid to shew you my opinion. NIV 6 So Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite said: “I am young in years, and you are old; that is why I was fearful, not daring to tell you what I know. RHE 7 For I hoped that greater age would speak, and that a multitude of years would teach wisdom. NIV 7 I thought, ‘Age should speak; advanced years should teach wisdom.’ RHE 8 But, as I see, there is a spirit in men, and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth understanding. NIV 8 But it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding. RHE 9 They that are aged are not the wise men, neither do the ancients understand judgment. NIV 9 It is not only the old who are wise, not only the aged who understand what is right. RHE 10 Therefore I will speak: Hearken to me, I also will shew you my wisdom. NIV 10 “Therefore I say: Listen to me; I too will tell you what I know. RHE 11 For I have waited for your words, I have given ear to your wisdom, as long as you were disputing in words. NIV 11 I waited while you spoke, I listened to your reasoning; while you were searching for words, RHE 12 And as long as I thought you said some thing, I considered: but, as I see, there is none of you that can convince Job, and answer his words. NIV 12 I gave you my full attention. But not one of you has proved Job wrong; none of you has answered his arguments. RHE 13 Lest you should say: We have found wisdom, God hath cast him down, not man. NIV 13 Do not say, ‘We have found wisdom; let God, not a man, refute him.’ RHE 14 He hath spoken nothing to me, and I will not answer him according to your words. NIV 14 But Job has not marshaled his words against me, and I will not answer him with your arguments. RHE 15 They were afraid, and answered no more, and they left off speaking. NIV 15 “They are dismayed and have no more to say; words have failed them. RHE 16 Therefore because I have waited, and they have not spoken: they stood, and answered no more: NIV 16 Must I wait, now that they are silent, now that they stand there with no reply? RHE 17 I also will answer my part, and will shew my knowledge. NIV 17 I too will have my say; I too will tell what I know. RHE 18 For I am full of matter to speak of, and the spirit of my bowels straiteneth me. NIV 18 For I am full of words, and the spirit within me compels me; RHE 19 Behold, my belly is as new wine which wanteth vent, which bursteth the new vessels. NIV 19 inside I am like bottled-up wine, like new wineskins ready to burst. RHE 20 I will speak and take breath a little: I will open my lips, and will answer. NIV 20 I must speak and find relief; I must open my lips and reply. RHE 21 I will not accept the person of man, and I will not level God with man. NIV 21 I will show no partiality, nor will I flatter anyone; RHE 22 For I know not how long I shall continue, and whether after a while my Maker may take me away. NIV 22 for if I were skilled in flattery, my Maker would soon take me away.
