I am young, and ye are very old;

I listened for your reasonings,
Whilst ye searched out what to say.

Yea, I attended unto you,
And, behold, there was none that convinced Job,
Or that answered his words, among you.

Beware lest ye say, We have found wisdom;
God may vanquish him, not man:

For he hath not directed his words against me;
Neither will I answer him with your speeches.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 32:15 -
They are amazed, they answer no more:
They have not a word to say.

And shall I wait, because they speak not,
Because they stand still, and answer no more?

I also will answer my part,
I also will show mine opinion.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 32:18 -
For I am full of words;
The spirit within me constraineth me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 32:19 -
Behold, my breast is as wine which hath no vent;
Like new wine-skins it is ready to burst.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 32:20 -
I will speak, that I may be refreshed;
I will open my lips and answer.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 32:21 -
Let me not, I pray you, respect any man’s person;
Neither will I give flattering titles unto any man.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 32:22 -
For I know not to give flattering titles;
Else would my Maker soon take me away.
