Job 32:21

_ _ “May I never accept,” etc. Elihu alludes to Job’s words (Job 13:8, Job 13:10), wherein he complains that the friends plead for God partially, “accepting His person.” Elihu says he will not do so, but will act impartially between God and Job. “And I will not give flattery,” etc. (Proverbs 24:23).
