Chapter 139

PSA.139:1 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
PSA.139:2 You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.
PSA.139:3 You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways.
PSA.139:4 For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
PSA.139:5 You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
PSA.139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.
PSA.139:7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
PSA.139:8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
PSA.139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
PSA.139:10 Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.
PSA.139:11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” Even the night shall be light about me;
PSA.139:12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
PSA.139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
PSA.139:14 I will praise You, for I am tearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
PSA.139:15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
PSA.139:16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
PSA.139:17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
PSA.139:18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
PSA.139:19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God! Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
PSA.139:20 For they speak against You wickedly; Your enemies take Your name in vain.
PSA.139:21 Do I not hate them, O LORD, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
PSA.139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.
PSA.139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties;
PSA.139:24 And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.
