till l the heavens are no more he will not awake
or be m roused out of his sleep.
13Oh that you would n hide me in o Sheol,
that you would p conceal me q until your wrath be past,
that you would appoint me a set time, and remember me!
14If a man dies, shall he live again?
All the days of my r service I would s wait,
till my renewal ▼
▼Or reliefshould come.
Isaiah 38:1111I said, I shall not see the Lord,
the Lord u in the land of the living;
I shall look on man no more
among the inhabitants of the world.
