Elihu Rebukes Job's Three Friends
11Indeed, I waited while you spoke; I listened to your reasoning; as you searched for words, 12I paid you full attention. But no one proved Job wrong; not one of you rebutted his arguments. 13So do not claim, ‘We have found wisdom; let God, not man, refute him.’…

Treasury of Scripture

Yes, I attended to you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:

behold

Job 32:3
Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.

1 Timothy 1:7
Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.









(12) There was none of you.--In Elihu's judgment there was no one who touched the main point of the argument with Job.

Verse 12. - Yea, I attended unto you - or, lent you my attention - and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job; rather, that convicted (or, confuted) Job. Or that answered his words. In Elihu's opinion, the argumentative value of all the long speeches of the three friends was nil; they had entirely failed to answer Job's arguments.
