Job 32:1-5 New International Version

Elihu Justifies His Right to Answer Job

32 1  So these three men stopped answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 2  But Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, became very angry with Job for justifying himself rather than God. 3  He was also angry with the three friends, because they had found no way to refute Job, and yet had condemned him.[1] 4  Now Elihu had waited before speaking to Job because they were older than he. 5  But when he saw that the three men had nothing more to say, his anger was aroused.
