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