Psalm 139:1–13

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.
