Job 32

32:1 So these three men ceased to answere Iob, because he was righteous in his owne eyes. 32:2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu, the sonne of Barachel the Buzite, of the kinred of Ram: against Iob was his wrath kindled, because he iustified himselfe rather then God. 32:3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled: because they had found no answere, and yet had condemned Iob. 32:4 Now Elihu had waited till Iob had spoken: because they were elder then he. 32:5 When Elihu saw that there was no answere in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled. 32:6 And Elihu the sonne of Barachel the Buzite answered and sayd: I am yong, and yee are very old, wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion. 32:7 I said, Dayes should speake, and multitude of yeeres should teach wisedome. 32:8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almightie giueth them vnderstanding. 32:9 Great men are not alwayes wise: neither doe the aged vnderstand iudgement. 32:10 Therfore I sayd, Hearken to me: I also will shew mine opinion. 32:11 Behold, I waited for your words: I gaue eare to your reasons, whilest you searched out what to say. 32:12 Yea, I attended vnto you: and beholde, there was none of you that conuinced Iob, or that answered his words: 32:13 Lest ye should say, We haue found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man. 32:14 Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answere him with your speeches. 32:15 They were amased, they answered no more, they left off speaking. 32:16 When I had waited, (for they spake not, but stood still and answered no more.) 32:17 I sayd, I will answere also my part, I also will shew mine opinion. 32:18 For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constraineth me. 32:19 Behold, my belly is as wine, which hath no vent, it is ready to burst like new bottles. 32:20 I will speake, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lippes, and answere. 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any mans person: neither let me giue flattering titles vnto man. 32:22 For I know not to giue flattering titles: in so doing my maker would soone take me away.
