6 So Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite said:
“I am young in years,
and you are old;
that is why I was fearful,
not daring to tell you what I know.
7 I thought, ‘Age should speak;
advanced years should teach wisdom.’
8 But it is the spirit[a] in a person,
the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding.
9 It is not only the old[b] who are wise,
not only the aged who understand what is right.
