Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?23
Oh that my words were nowwritten ! oh that they were printed in a book!24
That they were graven with an ironpen and lead in the rock for ever!25
For I know that my redeemerliveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:26
And though aftera my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I seeGod:27
Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold , and not another ;b though my reins be consumedwithin me.
But ye should say , Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?
Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishmentsof the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment .
