Psalms 139

1O Jehovah, thou have searched me, and known. 2Thou know my sitting down and my rising up. Thou understand my thought afar off. 3Thou search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. 4For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Jehovah, thou know it altogether. 5Thou have beset me behind and before, and laid thy hand upon me. 6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me. It is high, I cannot attain to it. 7Where shall I go from thy Spirit? Or where shall I flee from thy presence? 8If I ascend up into heaven, thou are there. If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou are there. 9If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the outermost parts of the sea, 10even there thy hand shall lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 11If I say, Surely the darkness shall overwhelm me, and the light around me shall be night, 12even the darkness hides not from thee, but the night shines as the day. The darkness and the light are both alike to thee. 13For thou formed my inward parts. Thou covered me in my mother's womb. 14I will give thanks to thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are thy works, and that my soul knows right well. 15My frame was not hidden from thee, when I was made in secret, curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16Thine eyes saw my unformed substance, and in thy book they were all written, even the days that were ordained, when as yet there was none of them. 17How precious also are thy thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18I count them; they are more in number than the sand. When I awake, I am still with thee. 19Surely thou will kill the wicked, O God. Depart from me therefore, ye bloodthirsty men. 20For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take it in vain. 21Do I not hate them, O Jehovah, who hate thee? And am I not grieved with those who rise up against thee? 22I hate them with perfect hatred. They have become my enemies. 23Search me, O God, and know my heart. Try me, and know my thoughts, 24and see if there is any wicked way in me. And lead me in the way everlasting.
