Jó 32

1 So these three men ceased answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.

2 Then the wrath of Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, was kindled against Job; his wrath was kindled because he was justifying his soul more than God.

3 Also against his three friends his wrath was kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.

4 Now because they were years older than he, Elihu had waited for Job, to speak.

5 So when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men, his wrath was kindled.

6 And Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, answered and said: I am young in years, and you are very old; therefore I have shrunk back, and out of respect for you, have not told my opinion.

7 I said, Age should speak, and multitude of years should declare wisdom.

8 But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.

9 Great men are not always wise, nor do the aged always discern justice.

10 Therefore I have said, Listen to me; I also will declare my opinion.

11 Behold, I waited for your speech, I listened to your reasonings, while you searched out words.

12 Yea, I paid attention to you, and behold, not one of you proved Job wrong, nor answered his words;

13 lest you should say, We have found wisdom; the Mighty God will drive him out, not man.

14 Now he has not directed his words against me; so I will not answer him with your words.

15 They have been dismayed and answer no more; they have left off speaking.

16 And I have waited, because they did not speak, because they have stood still and answered no more.

17 I also will answer my share, I too will declare my opinion.

18 For I am full of words; the spirit within me has compelled me.

19 Behold, my belly is like wine that has no vent; it is about to split open like new wineskins.

20 I will speak, that I may find relief; I must open my lips and answer.

21 I will not show partiality to anyone, nor will I flatter any man.

22 For I do not know how to flatter, else my Maker would soon take me away.
