10 Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion.
10 "Therefore I say: Listen to me; I too will tell you what I know.
10 Therefore I say, 'Listen to me; let me also declare my opinion.'
10 So I've decided to speak up. Listen well! I'm going to tell you exactly what I think.
10 "Therefore I say, 'Listen to me, I also will declare my opinion.'
10 So listen to me, and let me tell you what I think.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 32:10
Commentary on Job 32:6-14
(Read Job 32:6-14)
Elihu professes to speak by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and corrects both parties. He allowed that those who had the longest experience should speak first. But God gives wisdom as he pleases; this encouraged him to state his opinion. By attention to the word of God, and dependence upon the Holy Spirit, young men may become wiser than the aged; but this wisdom will render them swift to hear, slow to speak, and disposed to give others a patient hearing.
