You 1knowawhen I sitdown and bwhen I rise up; You 2understand my thought from afar.
You c3scrutinize 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 4know it all.
You have 5enclosed me behind and before, And 6laid Your hand upon me.
Such 7knowledge is 8toowonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
79Where can I go from Your Spirit ? Or where can I flee from Your presence ?
810If I ascend to heaven, You are there ; If I make my bed in fSheol, behold, 11You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotestpart of the sea,
10Eventhere Your hand will 12lead me, And Your righthand will layhold of me.
If I say, "Surely the 13darkness will goverwhelm me, And the lightaround me will be night,"
12Even the 14darkness is not darkhto You, And the night is as bright as the day. 15Darkness and light are alike to You.
For You 16formed my iinwardparts ; You 17wove me in my mother'swomb.
I will givethanks to You, for jI am fearfully and wonderfully made; 18Wonderful are Your works, And my soulknows it verywell.
My k19frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfullywrought in the 20depths of the earth ;
Your 21eyes have seen my unformedsubstance ; And in 22Your book were allwritten The 23days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
17Howprecious also are Your 24thoughts to me, O God ! Howvast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would 25outnumber the sand. When 26I awake, I am still with You.
19O that You would 27slay the wicked, O God ; 28Depart from me, therefore, 29men of bloodshed.
For they 30speaklagainst You wickedly, And Your enemiesm31take Your name in vain.
Do I not 32hate those who hate You, O LORD ? And do I not 33loathe those who rise up against You?
I hate them with the utmosthatred ; They have become my enemies.
2334Search me, O God, and know my heart ; 35Try me and know my anxiousthoughts ;
And seeif there be any n36hurtfulway in me, And 37lead me in the 38everlastingway.
