New International Version
I myself will see him with my own eyes--I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!
King James Bible
Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
Darby Bible Translation
Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another: -- my reins are consumed within me.
World English Bible
Whom I, even I, shall see on my side. My eyes shall see, and not as a stranger. "My heart is consumed within me.
Young's Literal Translation
Whom I -- I see on my side, And mine eyes have beheld, and not a stranger, Consumed have been my reins in my bosom.
Job 19:27 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Whom I shall see for myself - Have a personal interest in the resurrection, as I shall have in the Redeemer.
And mine eyes shall behold - That very person who shall be the resurrection, as he is the life.
And not another - ולא זר velo zar, and not a stranger, one who has no relation to human nature; but גאלי goali, my redeeming Kinsman.
Though my reins be consumed within me - Though I am now apparently on the brink of death, the thread of life being spun out to extreme tenuity. This, on the mode of interpretation which I have assumed, appears to be the meaning of this passage. The words may have a somewhat different colouring put on them; but the basis of the interpretation will be the same. I shall conclude with the version of Coverdale: -
For I am sure that my Redeemer liveth;
And that I shal ryse out of the earth in the latter daye;
That I shal be clothed againe with this skynne
And se God in my flesh.
Yee, I myself shal beholde him,
Not with other, but with these same eyes.
My reins are consumed within me, when ye saye,
Why do not we persecute him?
We have founde an occasion against him.

I know that my Redeemer liveth.--JOB 19:25. If, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.--This man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. Because I live, ye shall live also.--If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. …

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
