Background Scripture:  Job 19; Psalm 5723-29

Print Passage: Job 19:1-7, 23-29


Key Verse: I know that my redeem liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.  (Job 19:25, KJV)


19 Then Job answered and said,


How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?


These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.

And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.


If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:


Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.


Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.


23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!


24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!


25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:


26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:


27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.


28 But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?


29 Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
