Job 32:3-10

From Ethan Hardy

A. 3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled,

B.  because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.

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

B’.  5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth

A’. of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.


A.  6b I am young, but you are elderly; that is why I was fearful, and afraid to explain to you what I know.

B. 7 I said to myself, ‘Age should speak, and length of years should make wisdom known.’

C.  8 But it is a spirit in people, the breath of the Almighty, that makes them understand.

B’. 9 It is not the aged who are wise, nor old men who understand what is right.

A’. 10 Therefore I say, ‘Listen to me. I, even I, will explain what I know.
