Job 35-37 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Elihu is a transition between Job’s “friends” and God speaking. Are his arguments any better than the friends? Well, we do know that God doesn’t rebuke him! He is very concerned that Job recognize God’s sovereignty, and points out that God is awesome, righteous and just. He also does us a service by reminding us that to be wise is to be foolish, and that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

Job 37:22-24 “Out of the north comes golden splendor; God is clothed with awesome majesty. The Almighty—we cannot find him; he is great in power; justice and abundant righteousness he will not violate. Therefore men fear him; he does not regard any who are wise in their own conceit.””
