I'm on a journey to read through the Bible in chronological order. Taking it one day at a time, I will read based on a list I found on the internet and blog about what happened, thoughts provoked, emotions conjured, etc. Enjoy!

Day twelve: Job 32-34

The youngest of Job's friends has remained silent up until this point. When he realizes a quiet has settled, he lets himself go. He explains that age does not always bring wisdom and that he has some good points--the other's arguments have no footing and are meaningless. He challenges Job for claiming to be blameless and scold him for questioning why God has yet to speak

13 Why do you complain to him
that he answers none of man's words?

14 For God does speak—now one way, now another—
though man may not perceive it.

I found his response to be refreshing and very well spoken. I love that the youngest of the group waited patiently in the wings and then just blows everyone away with these amazing words. Elihu is an inspiration !
