:B:1 The three men made no further reply to Job, because in their opinion, he was guiltless. 2 But Elihu, son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, became angry with Job for justifying himself before God. 3 He was also angry with the three friends for their failure to refute Job, because they had allowed God to be condemned. 4 Because they were older than he, Elihu had bided his time
6 I am young and you are quite old
6 therefore I was timid and afraid
6 and dared not tell you of what I know.
7 “Age should speak,” I thought
7 “advanced years should teach wisdom.”
8 But it is the spirit in man,
8 the breath of the Almighty,
8 that makes him understand.
9 It is not the old alone who are wise,
9 nor the aged who understand what is right.
10 Therefore I said: “Listen,
10 let me also show my knowledge.
11 I waited for you to speak,
11 listening for your reasons,
11 as you searched for words.
12 I gave you my full attention
12 but none of you has proved Job wrong,
12 none has refuted his arguments.
13 Stop saying, “We have met wisdom
13 God has instructed us, not man.”
14 I will not resume your argument
14 or answer Job with your reasoning.
15 They keep quiet for they are dismayed
15 and have nothing more to say.
16 Must I wait, now that they are silent,
16 making no effort to reply?
17 I, too, will show my knowledge.
18 For I am full of words
18 and prodded on by the spirit.
19 I am like bottled-up wine,
19 or a wineskin bursting with wine.
20 I have to speak to find relief,
20 open my lips and make reply.
21 I will be partial to no one
21 and will not flatter anyone.
22 For if I were skilled in flattery,
22 my Maker would soon do away with me.
