Job 32:3-13

KJV 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. KJV 4 Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he. NIV 4 Now Elihu had waited before speaking to Job because they were older than he. KJV 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. KJV 6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew 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. KJV 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.’ KJV 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. KJV 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. KJV 10 Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion. NIV 10 “Therefore I say: Listen to me; I too will tell you what I know. KJV 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, KJV 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. KJV 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.’
