Job 19,1.23-27

Job spoke next. He said:

Will no one let my words be recorded, inscribed on some monument

with iron chisel and engraving tool, cut into the rock for ever?

I know that I have a living Defender and that he will rise up last, on the dust of the earth.

After my awakening, he will set me close to him, and from my flesh I shall look on God.

He whom I shall see will take my part: my eyes will be gazing on no stranger. My heart sinks within me.
