23“O that my words were written down!
O that they were inscribed in a book!24O that with an iron pen and with lead
they were engraved on a rock forever!25For I know that my Redeemer lives,
and that at the last he will stand upon the earth;26and after my skin has been thus destroyed,
then in my flesh I shall see God,27whom I shall see on my side,
and my eyes shall behold, and not another.
My heart faints within me!
