Chapter 32

Job:32:1: So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
Job:32:2: 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.
Job:32:3: Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.
Job:32:4: Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he.
Job:32:5: When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.
Job:32:6: And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion.
Job:32:7: I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.
Job:32:8: But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.
Job:32:9: Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.
Job:32:10: Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion.
Job:32:11: Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst ye searched out what to say.
Job:32:12: Yea, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:
Job:32:13: Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man.
Job:32:14: Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches.
Job:32:15: They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking.
Job:32:16: When I had waited, (for they spake not, but stood still, and answered no more;)
Job:32:17: I said, I will answer also my part, I also will shew mine opinion.
Job:32:18: For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constraineth me.
Job:32:19: Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.
Job:32:20: I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.
Job:32:21: Let me not, I pray you, accept any manís person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man.
Job:32:22: For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.

Chapter 33

Job:33:1: Wherefore, Job, I pray thee, hear my speeches, and hearken to all my words.
Job:33:2: Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.
Job:33:3: My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
Job:33:4: The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
Job:33:5: If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up.
Job:33:6: Behold, I am according to thy wish in Godís stead: I also am formed out of the clay.
Job:33:7: Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon thee.
Job:33:8: Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying,
Job:33:9: I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.
