4 The Spirit [ruwach] of God ['el] hath made [`asah] me, and
the breath [nashamah] of the Almighty [Shadday] hath given me life [chayah].
5 If thou canst [yakol] answer [shuwb] me, set thy words in order [`arak] before [paniym] me, stand
up [yatsab]. KJV-Interlinear
4 'The Spirit of God has made me,
And the breath of the Almighty gives me life. 5 'Refute me if you can; Array yourselves before me, take your stand. NASB
Elihu states here that he is a man just like Job
is. He was made in the womb and he
received the breath of life when born, just as Job was.
The word for made, 'asah,' means to be made in
accordance with a pattern. And in this
case, the template for Elihu was being formed in the womb as a human male
child. This is the same template for all
males of the human race and has been for a very log time now.
Females have a template as well, which by the way is
female. Just so there is no confusion.
There are two separate phases to human construction.
The first is the human biological construction and the second is the human life
The first, the biological, begins with conception and
takes about nine months to complete. Evidence
of this life is the fetus growing in the womb.
The second is the imputation of human life into a
human soul, which occurs instantaneously at the moment of birth. This second
phase is often called receiving the breath of life or the spark of life, also
referred to as 'nashamah,' in Genesis.
In this, God exhales life and man inhales life. Evidence of this life is found in the first
breath of the baby's life and in its cries.
Stillborn babies never breathe and never cry. They never spring to life. When they exit the womb, their biological
There is also a third construction of the human
essence, which is called the rebirth, or being born again. This third creation occurs instantaneously
also, and occurs at the moment when a person believes in Christ. In this, God creates a third vessel, the
human spirit, and imputes eternal life into it.
This third birth can occur at any time during ones life, but must occur
prior to ones death. Evidence of this is
found in faith. There is no physical
evidence that man can measure or detect regarding the spiritual aspect of ones
Likewise, Elihu now challenges Job to allow him to
speak and then answer him in a cordial and orderly manner. Elihu will not stoop to the low tactics of
the other men, but will speak with respect and reason, from his own point of
view. Elihu does not wish to create
controversy or an adversarial dispute.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
