1So these three men stopped answering Job because he was righteous in his own eyes.
2Then was kindled the anger of Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite, of the family of Ram; it was kindled against Job because he justified himself rather than God.
3Elihu's anger was also kindled against his three friends because they had found no answer to Job, and yet they had condemned Job.
4Now Elihu had waited to speak to Job because the other men were older than he.
5However, when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouths of these three men, his anger was kindled.
6Then Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite spoke up and said, “I am young, and you are very old. That is why I held back and did not dare to tell you my own opinion.
7I said, “Length of days should speak; a multitude of years should teach wisdom.
8But there is a spirit in a man; the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
9It is not only the great people who are wise, nor the aged people alone who understand justice.
10Therefore I say to you, 'Listen to me; I will also tell you my knowledge.'
11See, I waited for your words; I listened to your arguments while you were thinking about what to say.
12Indeed, I paid attention to you, but, see, there was not one of you who could convince Job or who could respond to his words.
13Be careful not to say, 'We have found wisdom!' God will have to defeat Job; mere man cannot do it.
14For Job has not directed his words against me, so I will not answer him with your words.
15These three men are dumbfounded; they can answer Job no longer; they have not a word more to say.
16Should I wait because they are not speaking, because they stand there silent and answer no more?
17No, I also will answer on my part; I will also tell them my knowledge.
18For I am full of words; the spirit in me compels me.

19See, my breast is like fermenting wine that has no vent; like new wineskins, it is ready to burst.
20I will speak so that I may be refreshed; I will open my lips and answer.
21I will not show favoritism; neither will I give honorific titles to any man.
22For I do not know how to give such titles; if I did so, my Maker would soon take me away.
