Psalms Chapter 139
139:1 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest
my thought afar off.
139:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with
all my ways.
139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou
knowest it altogether.
139:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot
attain unto it.
139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from
139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in
hell, behold, thou art there.
139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost
parts of the sea;
139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold
139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night
shall be light about me.
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.
139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my
139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
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.
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.
139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is
the sum of them!
139:18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand:
when I awake, I am still with thee.
139:19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me
therefore, ye bloody men.
139:20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy
name in vain.
139:21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved
with those that rise up against thee?
139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my
139:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way
