God’s Omnipresence and Omniscience.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.1 O Lord, You have a searched me and known me.
2 You b know ▼
▼ Lit my sittingwhen I sit down and ▼
▼ Lit my risingwhen I rise up;
You e understand my thought from afar.
3 You ▼
▼ Lit winnow, g scrutinize my ▼
▼ Or journeyingpath and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
▼ Lit For there is notEven before there is a word on my tongue,
Behold, O Lord, You j know it all.
5 You have k enclosed me behind and before,
And l laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such m knowledge is n too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
7 o Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 p If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in ▼
▼ I.e. the nether worldSheol, behold r You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will s lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11 If I say, “Surely the t darkness will ▼
▼ Lit bruise; some commentators read coveroverwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”
12 Even the v darkness is not dark ▼
▼ Lit fromto You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
x Darkness and light are alike to You.
13 For You y formed my ▼
▼ Lit kidneysinward parts;
You aa wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for ▼
▼ Some ancient versions read You are fearfully wonderfulI am fearfully and wonderfully made;
ac Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My ▼
▼ Lit bones were, ae frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the af depths of the earth;
16 Your ag eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in ah Your book were all written
The ai days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
17 How precious also are Your aj thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would ak outnumber the sand.
When al I awake, I am still with You.
19 O that You would am slay the wicked, O God;
an Depart from me, therefore, ao men of bloodshed.
20 For they ap speak ▼
▼ Or ofagainst You wickedly,
And Your enemies ▼
▼ Some mss read lift themselves up against You, as take Your name in vain.
21 Do I not at hate those who hate You, O Lord?
And do I not au loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with the utmost hatred;
They have become my enemies.
23 av Search me, O God, and know my heart;
aw Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
24 And see if there be any ▼
▼ Lit way of pain, ay hurtful way in me,
And az lead me in the ba everlasting way.
