Job 33:1-3



1 Wherefore ['uwlam], Job ['Iyowb], I pray thee, hear [shama`] my speeches [millah], and hearken ['azan] to all my words [dabar].

2 Behold, now I have opened [pathach] my mouth [peh], my tongue [lashown] hath spoken [dabar] in my mouth [chek].

3 My words ['emer] shall be of the uprightness [yosher] of my heart [leb]: and my lips [saphah] shall utter [malal] knowledge [da`ath] clearly [barar]. KJV-Interlinear



1 'However now, Job, please hear my speech, And listen to all my words. 2 'Behold now, I open my mouth, My tongue in my mouth speaks. 3 'My words are from the uprightness of my heart; And my lips speak knowledge sincerely. NASB



Thus far, Elihu has been introducing his speech. He has entered into the conversation with politeness and courtesy, and he has requested permission to speak out of respect for the elderly nature of the four men.


In this chapter, Elihu will address Job. In the next chapter, he will address the three friends.


Now Elihu explains the difference between his words and those of the three friends.


These words will be his words, out of his very own mouth, and his words alone. They will not be words spoken from clich s, out of life's taught principles, from long standing parables, from hearsay, and so forth.


Elihu states that he intends to speak clearly and plainly, and not in ambiguous or broad stated terms or phrases from which virtually any meaning or conclusion can be developed. He intends to speak clearly and from his own words, his intentions, his arguments, his conclusions can be well understood.


Elihu states that he will speak from knowledge, from knowledge of facts, and not from interpretations or conclusions from observations which lack the details of a situation.


Elihu will speak words that can be understood such that his message and his beliefs can be clearly understood.


He will not politicize his speech such that many words are said with no real or clear message, with the intent to disguise and confuse his position, leaving listeners with only his personality to decide their like or dislike of him.

End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
