Read Job 19:23-27

Job 19:23-27 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
23 I wish that my words
could be written down
24     or chiseled into rock.
25 I know that my Savior[a] lives,
and at the end
   he will stand on this earth.
26 My flesh may be destroyed,
yet from this body
   I will see God.[b]
27 Yes, I will see him for myself,
   and I long for that moment.

19.25 Savior: Or “Defender.”
19.26 God: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text of verses 25,26.
Contemporary English Version (CEV)

Through all his trials Job is convinced that God is good and will restore balance and justice to his life and the world.  


Lord I long to see you, your love and your justice.
