Psalm 139

CSB 1 Lord, You have searched me and known me. NIV 1 O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. CSB 2 You know when I sit down and when I stand up; You understand my thoughts from far away. NIV 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. CSB 3 You observe my travels and my rest; You are aware of all my ways. NIV 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. CSB 4 Before a word is on my tongue, You know all about it, Lord. NIV 4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. CSB 5 You have encircled me; You have placed Your hand on me. NIV 5 You hem me in--behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. CSB 6 [This] extraordinary knowledge is beyond me. It is lofty; I am unable to [reach] it. NIV 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. CSB 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? CSB 8 If I go up to heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, 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. CSB 9 If I live at the eastern horizon [or] settle at the western limits, NIV 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, CSB 10 even there Your hand will lead me; Your right hand will hold on to me. NIV 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. CSB 11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me, and the light around me will become night"- NIV 11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," CSB 12 even the darkness is not dark to You. The night shines like the day; darkness and light are alike to You. 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. CSB 13 For it was You who created my inward parts; 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. CSB 14 I will praise You, because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and 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. CSB 15 My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was formed 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, CSB 16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all [my] days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began. 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. CSB 17 God, how difficult Your thoughts are for me [to comprehend]; how vast their sum is! NIV 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! CSB 18 If I counted them, they would outnumber the grains of sand; when I wake up, 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. CSB 19 God, if only You would kill the wicked- you bloodthirsty men, stay away from me- NIV 19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God! Away from me, you bloodthirsty men! CSB 20 who invoke You deceitfully. Your enemies swear [by You] falsely. NIV 20 They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. CSB 21 Lord, don't I hate those who hate You, and detest those who rebel against You? NIV 21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD, and abhor those who rise up against you? CSB 22 I hate them with extreme hatred; I consider them my enemies. NIV 22 I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies. CSB 23 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. NIV 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. CSB 24 See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way. NIV 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
