Elihu Instructs

BibleInPoems, Ron Calugar, 2015-2022 155
Job 32:1-37:24

Elihu a young man had been listening.
He had felt so unworthy, like a maid to a king.

These wise men have failed. Now I may be a youth.
But listen to me, and I'll tell you the truth.

You said, I am clean, without iniquity.
Yet God has forsook, like an enemy.

Job, this is not just. You're not greater than Him.
You know to judge God is a fight you can't win.

If you're wrong and confess, God is quick to forgive.
But what have you said? Even wicked men live.

You've essentially taught, righteous does not avail.
If you delight in God, you're as likely to fail.

You are wrong Mr. Job. God is always just.
But does not always do as you think that He must.

His power is unlimited, He is past finding out.
You may not understand, but I'll say with no doubt;

When all's said and done you will have to agree,
God is always fair, even when we can't see.
