Psalm 139

*To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

O Lord, athou hast searched me, and known me.

Thou knowest bcmy downsitting and cdmine uprising,

eThou understandest my fthought afar off.

eThou ||compassest my path and my lying down,

And art gacquainted with all my ways.

For there is not a word in my tongue,

But, lo, O Lord, hthou knowest it altogether.

Thou hast ibeset me behind and before,

And klaid thine hand upon me.

Such lknowledge is mtoo wonderful for me;

It is high, I cannot attain unto it.

nWhither shall I go from thy spirit?

Or whither oshall I flee from thy presence?

pIf I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:

qIf I rmake my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

If I take sthe wings of the morning,

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10  Even there shall thy hand tlead me,

And thy right hand shall hold me.

11  If I say, uSurely the darkness shall cover me;

Even the night shall be light about me.

12  Yea, uthe 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 vpossessed my reins:

Thou hast wcovered me in my mother’s womb.

14  I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:

xMarvellous are thy works;

And that my soul knoweth right well.

15  yMy ||substance was not hid from thee,

When I was made in secret,

And zcuriously wrought in athe lowest parts of the earth.

16  yThine 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  bHow precious also are cthy thoughts unto me, O God!

How great is dthe sum of them!

18  If I eshould count them, they are more in number than fthe sand:

When I awake, I am still with thee.

19  gSurely thou wilt hslay the wicked, O God:

iDepart from me therefore, kye bloody men.

20  For they lspeak against thee wickedly,

And thine menemies take nthy name in vain.

21  oDo not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee?

And am not I pgrieved with qthose 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:

rTry me, and know my sthoughts:

24  And see if there be any wicked tway in me,

And ulead me in the tway xeverlasting.
