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 a in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee, for I am fearfully, wonderfully made. Marvellous are thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well.
My bones were b not hidden from thee when I was made in secret, curiously wrought in the lower parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my unformed substance, and in thy book all [my members] were written; [during many] days c were they fashioned, when [as yet] there was none of them.
But how precious are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
