23 “Oh, that my words were recorded,
    that they were written on a scroll,(A)
24 that they were inscribed with an iron tool(B) on[a] lead,
    or engraved in rock forever!(C)
25 I know that my redeemer[b](D) lives,(E)
    and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[c]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
    yet[d] in[e] my flesh I will see God;(F)
27 I myself will see him
    with my own eyes(G)—I, and not another.
    How my heart yearns(H) within me!
