AKJV(i) 1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 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. 3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job. 4 Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he. 5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled. 6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and you are very old; why I was afraid, and dared not show you my opinion. 7 I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom. 8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding. 9 Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment. 10 Therefore I said, Listen to me; I also will show my opinion. 11 Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst you searched out what to say. 12 Yes, I attended to you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words: 13 Lest you should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusts him down, not man. 14 Now he has not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches. 15 They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking. 16 When I had waited, (for they spoke not, but stood still, and answered no more;) 17 I said, I will answer also my part, I also will show my opinion. 18 For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constrains me. 19 Behold, my belly is as wine which has no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles. 20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer. 21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles to man. 22 For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.
