Psalm 139:1–12

1 O Lord, You have asearched me and known me.

2 You aknow 1when I sit down and 2when I rise up;

You bunderstand my thought from afar.

3 You 1ascrutinize my 2path and my lying down,

And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.

4 1Even before there is a word on my tongue,

Behold, O Lord, You aknow it all.

5 You have aenclosed me behind and before,

And blaid Your hand upon me.

6 Such aknowledge is btoo wonderful for me;

It is too high, I cannot attain to it.

7 aWhere can I go from Your Spirit?

Or where can I flee from Your presence?

8 aIf I ascend to heaven, You are there;

If I make my bed in 1Sheol, behold, bYou are there.

9 If I take the wings of the dawn,

If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,

10 Even there Your hand will alead me,

And Your right hand will lay hold of me.

11 If I say, “Surely the adarkness will 1overwhelm me,

And the light around me will be night,”

12 Even the adarkness is not dark 1to You,

And the night is as bright as the day.

bDarkness and light are alike to You.
