LITV(i) 1 And these three men rested from answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 2 And burned the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram; his wrath burned against Job, because he had justified himself rather than God. 3 Also his wrath burned against his three friends, because they had not found any answer, yet they had condemned Job. 4 And Elihu had waited for Job with words, because they were older than he in days. 5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men, then his anger burned. 6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and you are very aged; so I held back and was afraid to make my knowledge known to you. 7 I said, Days will speak, and many years will make wisdom known. 8 But it is a spirit in man giving them perception, even the breath of the Almighty. 9 It is not the great that are wise, nor the aged who perceive justice; 10 so then I say, Listen to me; I will declare my knowledge, I also. 11 Behold, I waited for your words; I listened to your reasons while you searched out words; 12 yea, I paid attention to you, and behold, not one of you proved Job wrong, nor answered his sayings; 13 that you not say, We have discovered wisdom. It is God who will scatter him, not man. 14 And he has not ordered words against me, and I will not answer him with your words. 15 They are broken; they do not reply again; words have departed from them. 16 Shall I wait because they do not speak, because they stand, not answering again? 17 I also will answer my share; I also will declare my knowledge. 18 For I am full of words; the spirit inside me pressed on me; 19 behold my breast is like wine that has no vent; it bursts like new wineskins. 20 I will speak so that I may be relieved; I will open my lips and answer. 21 I will not now lift up the face of a man, nor eulogize any man. 22 for I do not know how to eulogize; else after a little my Maker will take me away.
