Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:1 - For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
O LORD, You have searched me and known me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:2 - You know [fn]when I sit down and [fn]when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:3 - You [fn]scrutinize my [fn]path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:4 - [fn]Even before there is a word on my tongue,
Behold, O LORD, You know it all.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:5 - You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:6 - Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:7 - Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:8 - If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in [fn]Sheol, behold, You are there.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:9 - If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:10 - Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:11 - If I say, “Surely the darkness will [fn]overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:12 - Even the darkness is not dark [fn]to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:13 - For You formed my [fn]inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:14 - I will give thanks to You, for [fn]I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:15 - My [fn]frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:16 - Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:17 - How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:18 - If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:19 - O that You would slay the wicked, O God;
Depart from me, therefore, men of bloodshed.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:20 - For they speak [fn]against You wickedly,
And Your enemies [fn]take Your name in vain.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:21 - Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:22 - I hate them with the utmost hatred;
They have become my enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:23 - Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me and know my anxious thoughts;

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 139:24 - And see if there be any [fn]hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way.
