Job 32 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.

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.

3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.

4 Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he.

5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.

6 And 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.

7 I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.

8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding.

9 Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.

10 Therefore I said, Listen to me; I also will show my opinion.

11 Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst you searched out what to say.

12 Yes, I attended to you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:

13 Lest you should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusts him down, not man.

14 Now he has not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches.

15 They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking.

16 When I had waited, (for they spoke not, but stood still, and answered no more;)

17 I said, I will answer also my part, I also will show my opinion.

18 For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constrains me.

19 Behold, my belly is as wine which has no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.

20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.

21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles to man.

22 For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.


Job 33 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Why, Job, I pray you, hear my speeches, and listen to all my words.

2 Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue has spoken in my mouth.

3 My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.

4 The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.

5 If you can answer me, set your words in order before me, stand up.

6 Behold, I am according to your wish in God's stead: I also am formed out of the clay.

7 Behold, my terror shall not make you afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy on you.

8 Surely you have spoken in my hearing, and I have heard the voice of your words, saying,

9 I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.

10 Behold, he finds occasions against me, he counts me for his enemy,

11 He puts my feet in the stocks, he marks all my paths.

12 Behold, in this you are not just: I will answer you, that God is greater than man.

13 Why do you strive against him? for he gives not account of any of his matters.

14 For God speaks once, yes twice, yet man perceives it not.

15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, in slumberings on the bed;

16 Then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction,

17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

18 He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

19 He is chastened also with pain on his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

20 So that his life abhors bread, and his soul dainty meat.

21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

22 Yes, his soul draws near to the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

23 If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show to man his uprightness:

24 Then he is gracious to him, and said, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:

26 He shall pray to God, and he will be favorable to him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render to man his righteousness.

27 He looks on men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

29 See, all these things works God oftentimes with man,

30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

31 Mark well, O Job, listen to me: hold your peace, and I will speak.

32 If you have anything to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify you.

33 If not, listen to me: hold your peace, and I shall teach you wisdom.


Job 34 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Furthermore Elihu answered and said,

2 Hear my words, O you wise men; and give ear to me, you that have knowledge.

3 For the ear tries words, as the mouth tastes meat.

4 Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.

5 For Job has said, I am righteous: and God has taken away my judgment.

6 Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression.

7 What man is like Job, who drinks up scorning like water?

8 Which goes in company with the workers of iniquity, and walks with wicked men.

9 For he has said, It profits a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.

10 Therefore listen to me you men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.

11 For the work of a man shall he render to him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

12 Yes, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

13 Who has given him a charge over the earth? or who has disposed the whole world?

14 If he set his heart on man, if he gather to himself his spirit and his breath;

15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again to dust.

16 If now you have understanding, hear this: listen to the voice of my words.

17 Shall even he that hates right govern? and will you condemn him that is most just?

18 Is it fit to say to a king, You are wicked? and to princes, You are ungodly?

19 How much less to him that accepts not the persons of princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.

20 In a moment shall they die, and the people shall be troubled at midnight, and pass away: and the mighty shall be taken away without hand.

21 For his eyes are on the ways of man, and he sees all his goings.

22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

23 For he will not lay on man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God.

24 He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead.

25 Therefore he knows their works, and he overturns them in the night, so that they are destroyed.

26 He strikes them as wicked men in the open sight of others;

27 Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways:

28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come to him, and he hears the cry of the afflicted.

29 When he gives quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hides his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only:

30 That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.

31 Surely it is meet to be said to God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:

32 That which I see not teach you me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

33 Should it be according to your mind? he will recompense it, whether you refuse, or whether you choose; and not I: therefore speak what you know.

34 Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man listen to me.

35 Job has spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.

36 My desire is that Job may be tried to the end because of his answers for wicked men.

37 For he adds rebellion to his sin, he clapps his hands among us, and multiplies his words against God.
