Where can I go to get away from your Spirit? Where can I run from you?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there. If I lie down in the grave, you are there.
If I rise with the sun in the east and settle in the west beyond the sea,
even there you would guide me. With your right hand you would hold me.
I could say, "The darkness will hide me. Let the light around me turn into night."
But even the darkness is not dark to you. The night is as light as the day; darkness and light are the same to you.
You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother's body.
I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. What you have done is wonderful. I know this very well.
You saw my bones being formed as I took shape in my mother's body. When I was put together there,
you saw my body as it was formed. All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old.
God, your thoughts are precious to me. They are so many!
