"Oh, that my words were recorded, that they were written on a scroll,124
that they were inscribed with an iron tool2 ona lead, or engraved in rock forever!325
I know that my Redeemerb4 lives,5 and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.c26
And after my skin has been destroyed, yetd ine my flesh I will see God;627
I myself will see him with my own eyes7--I, and not another. How my heart yearns8 within me!
"If you say, 'How we will hound9 him, since the root of the trouble lies in him,f '
you should fear the sword yourselves; for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,10 and then you will know that there is judgment.g "11
