Old Testament Reading 1

A reading from the Book of Job 19: 1.23-27

Then Job answered 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.

This is the word of the Lord
