O LORD, You have 1searched me and known me.
You 2knowawhen I sitdown and bwhen I rise up; You 3understand my thought from afar.
You c4scrutinize my dpath and my lyingdown, And are intimatelyacquainted with all my ways.
4eEven before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You 5know it all.
You have 6enclosed me behind and before, And 7laid Your hand upon me.
Such 8knowledge is 9toowonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
710Where can I go from Your Spirit ? Or where can I flee from Your presence ?
811If I ascend to heaven, You are there ; If I make my bed in fSheol, behold, 12You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotestpart of the sea,
10Eventhere Your hand will 13lead me, And Your righthand will layhold of me.
If I say, "Surely the 14darkness will goverwhelm me, And the lightaround me will be night,"
12Even the 15darkness is not darkhto You, And the night is as bright as the day. 16Darkness and light are alike to You.
