Job 322 Elihu son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, became indignant. His indignation was kindled against Job because he justified himself rather than God . 3 Also against three friends was anger kindled, because they had found no answer , and yet they had declared him to be in the wrong . 4 Now Elihu had waited to speak to Job because the others were older than he. 5 But when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouths of these three men, he became angry. 6 Then Elihu son of Barachel the Buzite said, I am young, and you are aged; for that reason I was timid and restrained and dared not declare my opinion to you. 7 I said, Age should speak, and a multitude of years should teach wisdom . 8 But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives men understanding. 9 It is not the great who are wise, nor the aged who understand justice. 10 So I say, Listen to me; I also will give you my opinion and my knowledge. 11 You see, I waited for your words, I listened to your wise reasons, while you searched out what to say. 12 Yes, I paid attention to what you said, and behold, not one of you convinced Job or made replies to his words . 13 Beware lest you say, We have found wisdom; God thrusts down , not man . 14 Now has not directed his words against me , neither will I answer him with speeches like yours. 15 are amazed and embarrassed, they answer no more; they have not a thing to say . 16 And shall I wait, because they say nothing but stand still and answer no more? 17 I also will answer my part; I also will declare my opinion and my knowledge. 18 For I am full of words; the spirit within me constrains me. 19 My breast is as wine that has no vent; like new wineskins, it is ready to burst. 20 I must speak, that I may get relief and be refreshed; I will open my lips and answer. 21 I will not be influenced by respect for any man's person and show partiality, neither will I flatter any man. 22 For I know not how to flatter, my Maker would soon take me away.
