upon the earth.
KNOW that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day
And though after my skin worms destroy this body; yet in my flesh shall I see God: whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another. Job. 19. 25, 26, 27,

I became dumb, and opened not my mouth : for it was thy doing.

Hear my prayer, O Lord, and with thine cars consider my calling: hold not thy peace at my tears.
