25 Aber ich weis das mein Erlöser lebet /
vnd er wird mich hernach aus der Erden auffwecken.
26 Vnd werde darnach mit dieser meiner haut vmbgeben werden /
vnd werde in meinem fleisch Gott sehen.
27 Den selben werde ich mir sehen /
vnd meine augen werden jn schawen /
vnd kein frembder.
(Job 19, 25-27a Luther bibel 1545)
