Psalm 139

139:1 To the Overseer. --A Psalm by David. Jehovah, Thou hast searched me, and knowest. 139:2 Thou--Thou hast known my sitting down, And my rising up, Thou hast attended to my thoughts from afar. 139:3 My path and my couch Thou hast fanned, And [with] all my ways hast been acquainted. 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, Lo, O Jehovah, Thou hast known it all! 139:5 Behind and before Thou hast besieged me, And Thou dost place on me Thy hand. 139:6 Knowledge too wonderful for me, It hath been set on high, I am not able for it.  139:7 Whither do I go from Thy Spirit And whither from Thy face do I flee 139:8 If I ascend the heavens--there Thou [art] , And spread out a couch in Sheol, lo, Thee! 139:9 I take the wings of morning, I dwell in the uttermost part of the sea, 139:10 Also there Thy hand doth lead me, And Thy right hand doth hold me. 139:11 And I say, `Surely darkness bruiseth me, Then night [is] light to me. 139:12 Also darkness hideth not from Thee, And night as day shineth, as [is] darkness so [is] light. 139:13 For Thou--Thou hast possessed my reins, Thou dost cover me in my mother's belly. 139:14 I confess Thee, because that [with] wonders I have been distinguished. Wonderful [are] Thy works, And my soul is knowing [it] well. 139:15 My substance was not hid from Thee, When I was made in secret, Curiously wrought in the lower part of earth. 139:16 Mine unformed substance Thine eyes saw, And on Thy book all of them are written, The days they were formed--And not one among them.  139:17 And to me how precious have been Thy thoughts, O God, how great hath been their sum! 139:18 I recount them! than the sand they are more, I have waked, and I am still with Thee. 139:19 Dost Thou slay, O God, the wicked Then, men of blood, turn aside from me! 139:20 Who exchange Thee for wickedness, Lifted up to vanity [are] Thine enemies. 139:21 Do not I hate, Jehovah, those hating Thee And with Thy withstanders grieve myself 139:22 [ With] perfect hatred I have hated them, Enemies they have become to me. 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart, Try me, and know my thoughts, 139:24 And see if a grievous way be in me, And lead me in a way age-during!
