KJV JOB32 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB31.htm JOB33.htm
32:1 So these three [H7969] men [H582] ceased [H7673] to answer [H6030] Job [H347] , because he [was] righteous [H6662] in his own eyes [H5869] .(to: Heb. from answering)
32:2 Then was kindled [H2734] the wrath [H639] of Elihu [H453] the son [H1121] of Barachel [H1292] the Buzite [H940] , of the kindred [H4940] of Ram [H7410] : against Job [H347] was his wrath [H639] kindled [H2734] , because he justified [H6663] himself [H5315] rather than God [H430] .(himself: Heb. his soul)
32:3 Also against his three [H7969] friends [H7453] was his wrath [H639] kindled [H2734] , because they had found [H4672] no answer [H4617] , and [yet] had condemned [H7561] Job [H347] .
32:4 Now Elihu [H453] had waited [H2442] till Job [H347] had spoken [H1697] , because they [were] elder [H2205] [H3117] than he.(waited: Heb. expected Job in words)(elder: Heb. elder for days)
32:5 When Elihu [H453] saw [H7200] that [there was] no answer [H4617] in the mouth [H6310] of [these] three [H7969] men [H582] , then his wrath [H639] was kindled [H2734] .
32:6 And Elihu [H453] the son [H1121] of Barachel [H1292] the Buzite [H940] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , I [am] young [H6810] [H3117] , and ye [are] very old [H3453] ; wherefore I was afraid [H2119] , and durst [H3372] not shew [H2331] you mine opinion [H1843] .(young: Heb. few of days)(durst: Heb. feared)
32:7 I said [H559] , Days [H3117] should speak [H1696] , and multitude [H7230] of years [H8141] should teach [H3045] wisdom [H2451] .
32:8 But [H403] [there is] a spirit [H7307] in man [H582] : and the inspiration [H5397] of the Almighty [H7706] giveth them understanding [H995] .
32:9 Great men [H7227] are not [always] wise [H2449] : neither do the aged [H2205] understand [H995] judgment [H4941] .
32:10 Therefore I said [H559] , Hearken [H8085] to me; I also will shew [H2331] mine opinion [H1843] .
32:11 Behold, I waited [H3176] for your words [H1697] ; I gave ear [H238] to your reasons [H8394] , whilst ye searched out [H2713] what to say [H4405] .(reasons: Heb. understandings)(what: Heb. words)
32:12 Yea, I attended [H995] unto you, and, behold, [there was] none of you that convinced [H3198] Job [H347] , [or] that answered [H6030] his words [H561] :
32:13 Lest ye should say [H559] , We have found out [H4672] wisdom [H2451] : God [H410] thrusteth him down [H5086] , not man [H376] .
32:14 Now he hath not directed [H6186] [his] words [H4405] against me: neither will I answer [H7725] him with your speeches [H561] .(directed: or, ordered)
32:15 They were amazed [H2865] , they answered [H6030] no more: they left off [H6275] speaking [H4405] .(left: Heb. removed speeches from themselves)
32:16 When I had waited [H3176] , (for they spake [H1696] not, but stood still [H5975] , [and] answered [H6030] no more;)
32:17 [I said], I will answer [H6030] also my part [H2506] , I also will shew [H2331] mine opinion [H1843] .
32:18 For I am full [H4390] of matter [H4405] , the spirit [H7307] within [H990] me constraineth [H6693] me.(matter: Heb. words)(spirit: Heb. spirit of my belly)
32:19 Behold, my belly [H990] [is] as wine [H3196] [which] hath no vent [H6605] ; it is ready to burst [H1234] like new [H2319] bottles [H178] .(hath: Heb. is not opened)
32:20 I will speak [H1696] , that I may be refreshed [H7304] : I will open [H6605] my lips [H8193] and answer [H6030] .(be: Heb. breathe)
32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept [H5375] any man's [H376] person [H6440] , neither let me give flattering titles [H3655] unto man [H120] .
32:22 For I know [H3045] not to give flattering titles [H3655] ; [in so doing] my maker [H6213] would soon [H4592] take me away [H5375] .
