Job 19:1, 23-27a


OLD TESTAMENT READING (First Reading)

 

Job 19:1, 23-27a

 

A Reading from the Book of Job

 

Job answered Bildad the Shuhite and said:

Oh, would that my words were written down!

      Would that they were inscribed in a record:

That with an iron chisel and with lead

      they were cut in the rock forever!

But as for me, I know that my Vindicator lives,

      and that he will at last stand forth upon the dust;

Whom I myself shall see:

      my own eyes, not another's, shall behold him;

And from my flesh I shall see God;

      my inmost being is consumed with longing.

 

The word of the Lord.
