And whom my eyes will see, and not another.

My [fn]heart faints [fn]within me!

“If you say, ‘How shall we persecute him?’

And ‘[fn]What pretext for a case against him can we find?’

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:29 -

Then be afraid of the sword for yourselves,

For wrath brings the punishment of the sword,

So that you may know there is judgment.”

Lit my soul
I.e., siege ramp
Lit the men of my council
Lit dust
Lit which they have cut off
Lit kidneys
Lit in my loins
Or the root of the matter is found in him
