How can I get away from your Spirit? Where can I go to escape from you?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there. If I lie down in the deepest parts of the earth, you are also there.
Suppose I were to rise with the sun in the east and then cross over to the west where it sinks into the ocean.
Your hand would always be there to guide me. Your right hand would still be holding me close.
Suppose I were to say, "I'm sure the darkness will hide me. The light around me will become as dark as night."
Even that darkness would not be dark to you. The night would shine like the day, because darkness is like light to you.
You created the deepest parts of my being. You put me together inside my mother's body.
How you made me is amazing and wonderful. I praise you for that. What you have done is wonderful. I know that very well.
None of my bones was hidden from you when you made me inside my mother's body. That place was as dark as the deepest parts of the earth. When you were putting me together there,
your eyes saw my body even before it was formed. You planned how many days I would live. You wrote down the number of them in your book before I had lived through even one of them.
God, your thoughts about me are priceless. No one can possibly add them all up.
