Psalm 27:7-14 and Job 19:21-27
7 Hear my voice, O Lord, with which I have cried out to you. Have mercy on me, and hear me.
8 My heart has spoken to you; my face has sought you. I yearn for your face, O Lord.
9 Do not turn your face away from me. In your wrath, do not turn aside from your servant. Be my helper. Do not abandon me, and do not despise me, O God, my Saviour.
10 For my father and my mother have left me behind, but the Lord has taken me up.
11 O Lord, establish a law for me in your way, and direct me in the right path, because of my enemies.
12 Do not surrender me to the souls of those who trouble me. For unjust witnesses have risen up against me, and iniquity has lied to itself.
13 I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord, act manfully; and let your heart be strengthened, and remain with the Lord.
21 Have mercy on me, have compassion on me, at least you my friends, because the hand of the Lord has touched me.
22 Why do you pursue me just as God does, and satiate yourselves with my flesh?
23 Who will grant to me that my words may be written down? Who will grant to me that they may be inscribed in a book,
24 with an iron pen and a plate of lead, or else be carved in stone?
25 For I know that my Redeemer lives, and on the last day I will rise out of the earth.
26 And I will be enveloped again with my skin, and in my flesh I will see my God.
27 It is he whom I myself will see, and he whom my eyes will behold, and no other. This, my hope, has taken rest in my bosom.
