1 O Lord, aYou have searched me and known me.
2 bYou know my sitting down and my rising up;
You cunderstand my thought afar off.
And are acquainted with all my ways.
But behold, O Lord, eYou know it altogether.
5 You have 2hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 fSuch knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.
7 gWhere can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 hIf I ascend into heaven, You are there;
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall 4fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
