Job Righteousness - Job 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 man’s 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.  KJV
