Psalm 139

O Lord, you have searched me and
known me! You know when I sit down
and when I rise up, you discern my thoughts from
afar. You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord,
you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind
and before, and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is to wonderful for me, it is high
I cannot attain it. Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make
my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there you hand shall lead me.
If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night." even the darkness
is not dark to you, the night is brighter
than day, for darkness is as light to you.
For you formed my inward parts, you knitted
me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for
I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful
are your works, my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being
made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the
earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, in your
book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me, when as
yet there were none of them. How precious to me
our your thoughts O God! How vast is the sum of them!
If could count them they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you. Oh that you would
slay the wicked, O God! O men of blood, depart from me!
They speak against you with malicious intent,
Your enemy's take your name in vain! Do I not hate
those who hate you, O Lord? And do I not loath those
who rise up against you? I hate them with complete
hatred, I count them my enemies. Search me O God,
and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there be any grievous way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting!
