NIV 21 "Have pity on me, my friends, have pity, for the hand of God has struck me. CSB 22 Why do you persecute me as God [does]? Will you never get enough of my flesh?

CSB 23 I wish that my words were written down, that they were recorded on a scroll NIV 23 "Oh, that my words were recorded, that they were written on a scroll, CSB 24 or were inscribed in stone forever by an iron stylus and lead!

NIV 25 I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. CSB 26 Even after my skin has been destroyed, yet I will see God in my flesh. NIV 26 And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; CSB 27 I will see Him myself; my eyes will look at [Him], and not as a stranger. My heart longs within me. NIV 27 I myself will see him with my own eyes--I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! CSB 28 If you say, "How will we pursue him, since the root of the problem lies with him?" NIV 28 "If you say, 'How we will hound him, since the root of the trouble lies in him, ' CSB 29 be afraid of the sword, because wrath [brings] punishment by the sword, so that you may know there is a judgment. NIV 29 you should fear the sword yourselves; for wrath will bring punishment by the sword, and then you will know that there is judgment. "
