Job 32

TMBA 1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. NIV 1 So these three men stopped answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. TMBA 2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram. Against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than 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. TMBA 3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer and yet 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. TMBA 4 Now Elihu had waited until Job had spoken, because they were older than he. NIV 4 Now Elihu had waited before speaking to Job because they were older than he. TMBA 5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled. NIV 5 But when he saw that the three men had nothing more to say, his anger was aroused. TMBA 6 And Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, answered and said: "I am young, and ye are very old; therefore I was afraid, and dared not show you mine 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. TMBA 7 I said, `Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.' NIV 7 I thought, ‘Age should speak; advanced years should teach wisdom.’ TMBA 8 But there is a spirit in man, and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. NIV 8 But it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding. TMBA 9 Great men are not always wise, neither do the aged understand judgment. NIV 9 It is not only the old who are wise, not only the aged who understand what is right. TMBA 10 Therefore I say, `Hearken to me; I also will show mine opinion.' NIV 10 “Therefore I say: Listen to me; I too will tell you what I know. TMBA 11 "Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst ye searched out what to say. NIV 11 I waited while you spoke, I listened to your reasoning; while you were searching for words, TMBA 12 Yea, I attended unto you, and behold, there was none of you that convinced Job or that answered 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. TMBA 13 lest ye should say, `We have found out wisdom. God thrusteth him down, not man.' NIV 13 Do not say, ‘We have found wisdom; let God, not a man, refute him.’ TMBA 14 Now he hath not directed his words against me, neither will I answer him with your speeches. NIV 14 But Job has not marshaled his words against me, and I will not answer him with your arguments. TMBA 15 "They were amazed, they answered no more; they left off speaking. NIV 15 “They are dismayed and have no more to say; words have failed them. TMBA 16 When I had waited (for they spoke not, but stood still and answered no more), NIV 16 Must I wait, now that they are silent, now that they stand there with no reply? TMBA 17 I said, `I will answer also my part; I also will show mine opinion. NIV 17 I too will have my say; I too will tell what I know. TMBA 18 For I am full of matters; the spirit within me constraineth me. NIV 18 For I am full of words, and the spirit within me compels me; TMBA 19 Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new wineskins.' NIV 19 inside I am like bottled-up wine, like new wineskins ready to burst. TMBA 20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed; I will open my lips and answer. NIV 20 I must speak and find relief; I must open my lips and reply. TMBA 21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. NIV 21 I will show no partiality, nor will I flatter anyone; TMBA 22 For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my Maker would soon take me away. NIV 22 for if I were skilled in flattery, my Maker would soon take me away.
