I need information about the meaning of the Hebrew word translated as "redeemer" in Job 19:25.
I used Strong’s Concordance to determine the Hebrew word translated as “redeemer” in Job. You will find entry for gā’al in Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament (REF BS440.B5713 v.2).
I also selected a few citations from the ATLA Religion Database that may interest you:
