1 O Lord, athou hast searched me, and known me.
And art gacquainted with all my ways.
But, lo, O Lord, hthou knowest it altogether.
5 Thou hast ibeset me behind and before,
And klaid thine hand upon me.
It is high, I cannot attain unto it.
7 nWhither shall I go from thy spirit?
Or whither oshall I flee from thy presence?
8 pIf I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:
9 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.
But the night shineth as the day:
†The darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
