Chapter 139

1

 

  {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known [me].  

 

 


2

 

  Thou knowest my down-sitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off;  

 

 


3

 

  Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways;  

 

 


4

 

  For there is not yet a word on my tongue, [but] lo, O Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether.  

 

 


5

 

  Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thy hand upon me.  

 

 


6

 

  O knowledge too wonderful for me! it is high, I cannot [attain] unto it.  

 

 


7

 

  Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? and whither flee from thy presence?  

 

 


8

 

  If I ascend up into the heavens thou art there; or if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou [art there];  

 

 


9

 

  [If] I take the wings of the dawn [and] dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,  

 

 


10

 

  Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.  

 

 


11

 

  And if I say, Surely darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night;  

 

 


12

 

  Even darkness hideth not from thee, and the night shineth as the day: the darkness is as the light.  

 

 


13

 

  For thou hast possessed my reins; thou didst cover me in my mother's womb.  

 

 


14

 

  I will praise thee, for I am fearfully, wonderfully made. Marvellous are thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well.  

 

 


15

 

  My bones were not hidden from thee when I was made in secret, curiously wrought in the lower parts of the earth.  

 

 


16

 

  Thine eyes did see my unformed substance, and in thy book all [my members] were written; [during many] days were they fashioned, when [as yet] there was none of them.  

 

 


17

 

  But how precious are thy thoughts unto me, O łGod! how great is the sum of them!  

 

 


18

 

  [If] I would count them, they are more in number than the sand. When I awake, I am still with thee.  

 

 


19

 

  Oh that thou wouldest slay the wicked, O +God! And ye men of blood, depart from me.  

 

 


20

 

  For they speak of thee wickedly, they take [thy name] in vain, thine enemies.  

 

 


21

 

  Do not I hate them, O Jehovah, that hate thee? and do not I loathe them that rise up against thee?  

 

 


22

 

  I hate them with perfect hatred; I account them mine enemies.  

 

 


23

 

  Search me, O łGod, and know my heart; prove me, and know my thoughts;  

 

 


24

 

  And see if there be any grievous way in me; and lead me in the way everlasting.
