Elihu still isn’t through defending god. Now he claims that “it is wrong to say God doesn’t listen, to say the Almighty isn’t concerned. You say you can’t see him, but he will bring justice if you will only wait.” (v 13-14) Yadda yadda yadda.
He’s still not done. He’s starting to remind me of William Lane Craig. He’s on a roll, and he sounds like he’s enjoying the sound of his own voice. He could use a science lesson or two – “Who can understand the spreading of the clouds and the thunder that rolls forth from heaven? See how he spreads the lightning around him and how it lights up the depths of the sea.” (v 29-30) but I doubt he’d listen.
Elihu has been yakking since chapter 32, in case you’ve lost track by now. This chapter is a testimony to pre-scientific thinking. Verses 2-18 explain how god creates the weather.
