Job 32

 

 

Verses 1-22

Job 32:1 So these three men ceased to answer Job , because he was righteous in his own eyes.

Job 32:1Comments- Elihu's speeches will address the issue of Job's self-righteousness ( Job 32:2 to Job 37:24). God will then deliver his speeches to Job so that he can see himself in light of God's divine nature ( Job 38:1 to Job 41:34); thus Job repents of his self-righteous attitude.

Job 32:2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God.

Job 32:2Word Study on "Elihu" - Strong says the Hebrew name "Elihu" (H 453) means, "God of him."

Job 32:2Word Study on "Barachel" - Strong says the Hebrew name "Barachel" (H 1292) means, "God has blessed."

Job 32:2Word Study on "Ram" - Strong says the Hebrew name "Ram" (H 7410) means, "high."

Job 32:2Comments - The book of Job makes no mention of Elihu until Job 32:2; yet he says he has heard the speeches of Job and his three friends. Evidently, Elihu had been present mourning with Job along with others while his three friends were speaking.
