Week 41 – Elihu: 

           Just when you thought everyone was done, a surprise witness takes the stand and a new voice emerges. Elihu is a younger and less experienced friend of Job’s. He has been in the room this whole time but he has remained silent out of respect for Job and for the elder friends. He has allowed them to speak without interruption but now that they are done he wants to add his own words. Words that, even though they are not always correct, are far wiser than the words of the other three friends.
