“Oh, that the words I now speak were written!
Oh, that they were recorded in a scroll!
That with an iron stylus and [molten] lead
They were engraved in the rock forever!
For I know that my Redeemer and Vindicator lives,
And at the last He will take His stand upon the earth.
Even after my [mortal] skin is destroyed [by death],
Yet from my [immortal] flesh I will see God,
Whom I, even I, will see for myself,
And my eyes will see Him and not another!
My heart faints within me.
