Wherefore I held back, and durst not show you mine opinion.
32:7I said, Days should speak,
32:9It is not the great that are wise,
Nor the aged that understand justice.
32:10Therefore I said, Hearken to me;
I also will show mine opinion. \\ \\
32:11Behold, I waited for your words,
I listened for your reasonings,
Whilst ye searched out what to say.
32:12Yea, I attended unto you,
And, behold, there was none that convinced Job,
Or that answered his words, among you.
32:13Beware lest ye say, We have found wisdom;
32:14For he hath not directed his words against me;
Neither will I answer him with your speeches. \\ \\
32:15They are amazed, they answer no more:
They have not a word to say.
32:16And shall I wait, because they speak not,
Because they stand still, and answer no more?
32:17I also will answer my part,
I also will show mine opinion.
32:18For I am full of words;
The spirit within me constraineth me.
32:19Behold, my breast is as wine which hath no vent;
Like new wine-skins it is ready to burst.
32:20I will speak, that I may be refreshed;
I will open my lips and answer.
32:21Let me not, I pray you, respect any man's person;
Neither will I give flattering titles unto any man.
32:22For I know not to give flattering titles;
Else would my Maker soon take me away.
