The Inspirational Words of Job

I read this this morning, and thought it was not only an encouragement but a fabulous piece of writing. It’s something we sometimes miss with Biblical writing. That not only is it God’s word, but there sometimes is incredibly inspiring — not just inspired — verbiage and textual organization.

Oh that my words were written!
Oh that they were inscribed in a book!
Oh that with an iron pen and lead
they were engraved in the rock forever!
For I know that my Redeemer lives,
and at the last he will stand upon the earth.

-Job 19:23-25
