1 And his three friends also ceased any longer to answer Job: for Job was righteous before them. 2 Then Elius the son of Barachiel, the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram, of the country of Ausis, was angered: and he was very angry with Job, because he justified himself before the Lord. 3 And he was also very angry with [his] three friends, because they were not able to return answers to Job, yet set him down for an ungodly man. 4 But Elius had forborne to give an answer to Job, because they were older than he. 5 And Elius saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men; and he was angered in his wrath. 6 And Elius the Buzite the son of Barachiel answered and said, I am younger in age, and ye are elder, wherefore I kept silence, fearing to declare to you my own knowledge. 7 And I said, It is not time that speaks, though in many years [men] know wisdom: 8 but there is a spirit in mortals; and the inspiration of the Almighty is that which teaches. 9 The long-lived are not wise [as such]; neither do the aged know judgment. 10 Wherefore I said, Hear me, and I will tell you what I know. 11 Hearken to my words; for I will speak in your hearing, until ye shall have tried [the matter] with words: 12 and I shall understand as far as you; and, behold, there was no one of you that answered Job his words in argument, 13 lest ye should say, We have found that we have added wisdom to the Lord. 14 And ye have commissioned a man to speak such words. 15 They were afraid, they answered no longer; they gave up their speaking. 16 I waited, (for I had not spoken,) because they stood still, they answered not. 17 And Elius continued, and said, I will again speak, 18 for I am full of words, for the spirit of my belly destroys me. 19 And my belly is as a skin of sweet wine, bound up [and] ready to burst; or as a brazier’s labouring bellows. 20 I will speak, that I may open my lips and relieve myself. 21 For truly I will not be awed because of man, nor indeed will I be confounded before a mortal. 22 For I know not how to respect persons: and if otherwise, even the moths would eat me. ΗΣΥΧΑΣΑΝ δὲ καὶ οἱ τρεῖς φίλοι αὐτοῦ ἔτι ἀντειπεῖν ᾿Ιώβ, ἦν γὰρ ᾿Ιὼβ δίκαιος ἐναντίον αὐτῶν. 2 ὠργίσθη δὲ ᾿Ελιοὺς ὁ τοῦ Βαραχιὴλ ὁ Βουζίτης ἐκ τῆς συγγενείας Ρὰμ τῆς Αὐσίτιδος χώρας· ὠργίσθη δὲ τῷ ᾿Ιὼβ σφόδρα, διότι ἀπέφηνεν ἑαυτὸν δίκαιον ἐναντίον Κυρίου. 3 καὶ κατὰ τῶν τριῶν δὲ φίλων ὠργίσθη σφόδρα, διότι οὐκ ἠδυνήθησαν ἀποκριθῆναι ἀντίθετα ᾿Ιὼβ καὶ ἔθεντο αὐτὸν εἶναι ἀσεβῆ. 4 ᾿Ελιοὺς δὲ ὑπέμεινε δοῦναι ἀπόκρισιν ᾿Ιώβ, ὅτι πρεσβύτεροι αὐτοῦ εἰσιν ἡμέραις. 5 καὶ εἶδεν ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἀπόκρισις ἐν στόματι τῶν τριῶν ἀνδρῶν, καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ αὐτοῦ. 6 ὑπολαβὼν δὲ ᾿Ελιοὺς ὁ τοῦ Βαραχιὴλ ὁ Βουζίτης εἶπε· νεώτερος μέν εἰμι τῷ χρόνῳ, ὑμεῖς δέ ἐστε πρεσβύτεροι· διὸ ἡσύχασα φοβηθεὶς τοῦ ὑμῖν ἀναγγεῖλαι τὴν ἐμαυτοῦ ἐπιστήμην. 7 εἶπα δὲ ὅτι οὐχ ὁ χρόνος ἐστὶν ὁ λαλῶν, ἐν πολλοῖς δὲ ἔτεσι οἴδασι σοφίαν, 8 ἀλλὰ πνεῦμά ἐστιν ἐν βροτοῖς, πνοὴ δὲ Παντοκράτορός ἐστιν ἡ διδάσκουσα· 9 οὐχ οἱ πολυχρόνιοί εἰσι σοφοί, οὐδ᾿ οἱ γέροντες οἴδασι κρίμα. 10 διὸ εἶπα· ἀκούσατέ μου, καὶ ἀναγγελῶ ὑμῖν ἃ οἶδα. 11 ἐνωτίζεσθέ μου τὰ ρήματα· ἐρῶ γὰρ ὑμῶν ἀκουόντων, ἄχρις οὗ ἐτάσητε λόγους, 12 καὶ μέχρι ὑμῶν συνήσω. καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐκ ἦν τῷ ᾿Ιὼβ ἐλέγχων ἀνταποκρινόμενος ρήματα αὐτοῦ ἐξ ὑμῶν, 13 ἵνα μὴ εἴπητε· εὕρομεν σοφίαν Κυρίῳ προσθέμενοι· 14 ἀνθρώπῳ δὲ ἐπετρέψατε λαλῆσαι τοιαῦτα ρήματα. 15 ἐπτοήθησαν, οὐκ ἀπεκρίθησαν ἔτι, ἐπαλαίωσαν ἐξ αὐτῶν λόγους. 16 ὑπέμεινα, οὐ γὰρ ἐλάλησαν· ὅτι ἔστησαν, οὐκ ἀπεκρίθησαν. 17 ὑπολαβὼν δὲ ᾿Ελιοὺς λέγει· πάλιν λαλήσω· 18 πλήρης γάρ εἰμι ρημάτων, ὀλέκει γάρ με τὸ πνεῦμα τῆς γαστρός· 19 ἡ δὲ γαστήρ μου ὥσπερ ἀσκὸς γλεύκους ζέων δεδεμένος ἢ ὥσπερ φυσητὴρ χαλκέως ἐρρηγώς. 20 λαλήσω, ἵνα ἀναπαύσωμαι ἀνοίξας τὰ χείλη· 21 ἄνθρωπον γὰρ οὐ μὴ αἰσχυνθῶ, ἀλλὰ μὴν οὐδὲ βροτὸν οὐ μὴ ἐντραπῶ· 22 οὐ γὰρ ἐπίσταμαι θαυμάσαι πρόσωπα· εἰ δὲ μή, καὶ ἐμὲ σῆτες ἔδονται.
