Job 32-34

Filed under: Old Testament — Thomas @ 13:55

Job’s three friends have nothing more to say because all they can do is repeat their arguments that Job is reaping what he sowed and must be a grievous sinner. Chapter 32 brings a new, younger man, to the scene in the person of Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite. He begins strong, objecting that the three friends have not answered Job’s arguments and proved him wrong. Unfortunately, he then goes on to call Job a fool and concludes this section, “To his sin he adds rebellion; scornfully he claps his hands among us and multiplies his words against God.”
