Chapter 139

1

 

 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known [me]. 

 

 


2

 

 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 

 

 


3

 

 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted [with] all my ways. 

 

 


4

 

 For [there is] not a word in my tongue, [but], lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 

 

 


5

 

 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 

 

 


6

 

 [Such] knowledge [is] too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot [attain] unto it. 

 

 


7

 

 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 

 

 


8

 

 If I ascend up into heaven, thou [art] there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou [art there]. 

 

 


9

 

 [If] I take the wings of the morning, [and] dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 

 

 


10

 

 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 

 

 


11

 

 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 

 

 


12

 

 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light [are] both alike [to thee]. 

 

 


13

 

 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. 

 

 


14

 

 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well. 

 

 


15

 

 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 

 

 


16

 

 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them. 

 

 


17

 

 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 

 

 


18

 

 [If] I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. 

 

 


19

 

 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. 

 

 


20

 

 For they speak against thee wickedly, [and] thine enemies take [thy name] in vain. 

 

 


21

 

 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 

 

 


22

 

 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. 

 

 


23

 

 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 

 

 


24

 

 And see if [there be any] wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
