Chapter 139

1

 O Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known [me].

2

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

3

 Thou searchest out 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 Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether.

5

 Thou hast beset me behind and before, And laid thy 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 Sheol, 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 overwhelm me, And the light about me shall be night;

12

 Even 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 didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my mother's womb.

14

 I will give thanks unto thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well.

15

 My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, [And] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16

 Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, [Even] the days that were ordained [for me], 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 bloodthirsty men.

20

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

21

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

22

 I hate them with perfect hatred: They are become 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. Psalm 140 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
