Why do ye persecute me as G-d, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!
That with an iron pen and lead they were graven in the rock for ever!
But as for me, I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He will witness at the last upon the dust;
And when after my skin this is destroyed, then without my flesh shall I see G-d;
Whom I, even I, shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another's. My reins are consumed within me.
If ye say: 'How we will persecute him!' seeing that the root of the matter is found in me;
Be ye afraid of the sword; for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
