Psalm 139

139:1 To the chiefe Musician, A Psalme of Dauid. O Lord, thou hast searched mee, and knowen me. 139:2 Thou knowest my downe sitting, and mine vprising: thou vnderstandest my thought afarre off. 139:3 Thou compassest my path, and my lying downe, and art acquainted with all my wayes. 139:4 For there is not a worde in my tongue: but lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. 139:5 Thou hast beset me behind, and before: and laid thine hand vpon me. 139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderfull for me: it is high, I cannot attaine vnto it. 139:7 Whither shall I goe from thy spirit or whither shall I flie from thy presence 139:8 If I ascend vp into heauen, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning: and dwell in the vttermost parts of the Sea: 139:10 Euen there shall thy hand leade me: and thy right hand shall hold me. 139:11 If I say, Surely the darkenes shall couer me: euen the night shall bee light about me. 139:12 Yea the darkenesse hideth not from thee, but the night shineth as the day: the darknes and the light are both alike to thee. 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reines: thou hast couered me in my mothers wombe. 139:14 I will praise thee, for I am fearefully and wonderfully made, marueilous are thy works: and that my soule knoweth right well. 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret: and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance yet being vnperfect, and in thy booke all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned: when as yet there was none of them. 139:17 Howe precious also are thy thoughts vnto me, O God: how great is the summe of them 139:18 If I should count them, they are moe in number then 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 bloody men. 139:20 For they speake against thee wickedly: and thine enemies take thy name in vaine. 139:21 Doe not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee and am not I grieued with those that rise vp against thee 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. 139:23 Search me, O God, and knowe my heart: trie mee, and knowe my thoughts: 139:24 And see if there bee any wicked way in me: and leade me in the way euerlasting.
