Job 32:13
Context
Elihu Rebukes Job's Three Friends

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