Psalm 139

139:1 O Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known [me]. 139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising; Thou understandest my thought afar off. 139:3 Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, And art acquainted with all my ways. 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, But, lo, O Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether. 139:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, And laid thy hand upon me. 139:6 [Such] knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain unto it. 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy Spirit Or whither shall I flee from thy presence 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou art there. 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, And thy right hand shall hold me. 139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall overwhelm me, And the light about me shall be night; 139:12 Even the darkness hideth not from thee, But the night shineth as the day: The darkness and the light are both alike [to thee]. 139:13 For thou didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my mother's womb. 139:14 I will give thanks unto thee; For I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. 139:15 My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, [And] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 139:16 Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, [Even] the days that were ordained [for me], When as yet there was none of them. 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 139:18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: When I awake, I am still with thee. 139:19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: Depart from me therefore, ye bloodthirsty men. 139:20 For they speak against thee wickedly, And thine enemies take [thy name] in vain. 139:21 Do not I hate them, O Jehovah, that hate thee And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: They are become mine enemies. 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts; 139:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.
