Psalms 139

Psalms 139:1  
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.

Psalms 139:2  
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

Psalms 139:3  
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

Psalms 139:4  
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

Psalms 139:5  
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

Psalms 139:6  
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Psalms 139:7  
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

Psalms 139:8  
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

Psalms 139:9  
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

Psalms 139:10  
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Psalms 139:11  
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

Psalms 139:12  
Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Psalms 139:13  
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

Psalms 139:14  
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Psalms 139:15  
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Psalms 139:16  
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

Psalms 139:17  
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

Psalms 139:18  
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

Psalms 139:19  
Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.

Psalms 139:20  
For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.

Psalms 139:21  
Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

Psalms 139:22  
I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

Psalms 139:23  
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

Psalms 139:24  
And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
