Psalm 139:7–24

Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I fleep from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens,q you are there;

if I make my bedr in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

if I settle on the far side of the sea,

10 even there your hand will guide me,s

your right handt will hold me fast.

11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me

and the light become night around me,”

12 even the darkness will not be darku to you;

the night will shine like the day,

for darkness is as light to you.

13 For you created my inmost being;v

you knit me togetherw in my mother’s womb.x

14 I praise youy because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful,z

I know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you

when I was madea in the secret place,

when I was woven togetherb in the depths of the earth.c

16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;

all the days ordainedd for me were written in your book

before one of them came to be.

17 How precious to me are your thoughts,a e God!f

How vast is the sum of them!

18 Were I to count them,g

they would outnumber the grains of sandh

when I awake,i I am still with you.

19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!j

Away from me,k you who are bloodthirsty!l

20 They speak of you with evil intent;

your adversariesm misuse your name.n

21 Do I not hate thoseo who hate you, Lord,

and abhorp those who are in rebellion against you?

22 I have nothing but hatred for them;

I count them my enemies.q

23 Search me,r God, and know my heart;s

test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24 See if there is any offensive wayt in me,

and lead meu in the way everlasting.
