I was gonna type my own reply, then I stumbled upon Matthew Henry's commentary and figured I couldn't really put it any better myself. I usually like to type my own thoughts but this is pretty much spot on.

Elihu professes to speak by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and corrects both parties. He allowed that those who had the longest experience should speak first. But God gives wisdom as he pleases; this encouraged him to state his opinion. By attention to the word of God, and dependence upon the Holy Spirit, young men may become wiser than the aged; but this wisdom will render them swift to hear, slow to speak, and disposed to give others a patient hearing.

First off your translation is off.

6. Then Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite raised his voice and said, "I am young in days and you are very old; therefore, I was awestricken, and I feared to declare my opinion to you.

There's a difference in saying "Elihu raised his voice" and saying "Elihu professes to speak by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit."
