“Oh that my words were written!
Oh that they were inscribed in a book! 24
That with an iron stylus and lead
They were engraved in the rock forever! 25
As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,
And at the last He will rise up over the dust of this world. 26
Even after my skin is destroyed,
Yet from my flesh I shall behold God, 27
Whom I myself shall behold,
And whom my eyes will see and not another.
My heart faints within me!
