Job wants his story and words remembered (Job 19:23-19:24)

“O that my words were written down!

O that they were inscribed in a book!

O that they were inscribed with an iron pen and with lead

O that they were graven in the rock forever!”

Job wanted his words written down. Luckily for him, they have been inscribed in this book of Job. Are these his exact words? Probably not, but the gist is the same. He wanted to be remembered for something. He wanted someone with pen or lead to write it on a rock. He wanted everyone to know about his sufferings.
