For the leader. A psalm of David: ADONAI, you have probed me, and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I stand up, you discern my inclinations from afar,
you scrutinize my daily activities. You are so familiar with all my ways
that before I speak even a word, ADONAI, you know all about it already.
You have hemmed me in both behind and in front and laid your hand on me.
Such wonderful knowledge is beyond me, far too high for me to reach.
