Psalm 139

CJB 1 For the leader. A psalm of David: ADONAI, you have probed me, and you know me. NIV 1 O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. CJB 2 You know when I sit and when I stand up, you discern my inclinations from afar, NIV 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. CJB 3 you scrutinize my daily activities. You are so familiar with all my ways NIV 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. CJB 4 that before I speak even a word, ADONAI, you know all about it already. NIV 4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. CJB 5 You have hemmed me in both behind and in front and laid your hand on me. NIV 5 You hem me in--behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. CJB 6 Such wonderful knowledge is beyond me, far too high for me to reach. NIV 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. CJB 7 Where can I go to escape your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? NIV 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? CJB 8 If I climb up to heaven, you are there; if I lie down in Sh'ol, you are there. NIV 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. CJB 9 If I fly away with the wings of the dawn and land beyond the sea, NIV 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, CJB 10 even there your hand would lead me, your right hand would hold me fast. NIV 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. CJB 11 If I say, "Let darkness surround me, let the light around me be night," NIV 11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," CJB 12 even darkness like this is not too dark for you; rather, night is as clear as day, darkness and light are the same. NIV 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. CJB 13 For you fashioned my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb. NIV 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. CJB 14 I thank you because I am awesomely made, wonderfully; your works are wonders -I know this very well. NIV 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. CJB 15 My bones were not hidden from you when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. NIV 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, CJB 16 Your eyes could see me as an embryo, but in your book all my days were already written; my days had been shaped before any of them existed. NIV 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. CJB 17 God, how I prize your thoughts! How many of them there are! NIV 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! CJB 18 If I count them, there are more than grains of sand; if I finish the count, I am still with you. NIV 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. CJB 19 God, if only you would kill off the wicked! Men of blood, get away from me! NIV 19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God! Away from me, you bloodthirsty men! CJB 20 They invoke your name for their crafty schemes; yes, your enemies misuse it. NIV 20 They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. CJB 21 ADONAI, how I hate those who hate you! I feel such disgust with those who defy you! NIV 21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD, and abhor those who rise up against you? CJB 22 I hate them with unlimited hatred! They have become my enemies too. NIV 22 I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies. CJB 23 Examine me, God, and know my heart; test me, and know my thoughts. NIV 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. CJB 24 See if there is in me any hurtful way, and lead me along the eternal way. NIV 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
