Thou searchest out a my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways;
For there is not yet b a word on my tongue, [but] lo, O Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thy hand upon me.
O knowledge too wonderful for me! it is high, I cannot [attain] unto it.
Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? and whither flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into the heavens thou art there; or if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou [art there];
[If] I take the wings of the dawn [and] dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
And if I say, Surely darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night;
Even darkness hideth not from thee, and the night shineth as the day: the darkness is as the light.
For thou hast possessed my reins; thou didst cover me c in my mother's womb.
