Psalm 139

WYC 1 To victory, the psalm of David. Lord, thou hast proved me, and hast known me; (To victory, the song of David. Lord, thou hast assayed, or tested, me, and thou knowest me;) NIV 1 O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. WYC 2 thou hast known my sitting, and my rising again. Thou hast understood my thoughts from [a]far; (thou hast known my sitting down, and my rising up. Thou hast understood my thoughts from afar;) NIV 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. WYC 3 thou hast inquired (of) my path and my cord. And thou hast before-seen all my ways; (thou hast examined my path, and my resting places. And thou hast foreseen all my ways.) NIV 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. WYC 4 for no word is in my tongue. Lo! Lord, thou hast known all things, (Yea, there is no word on my tongue, lo! Lord; but that thou not knowest it first.) NIV 4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. WYC 5 the new things and eld; thou hast formed me, and hast set thine hand on me. (Thou art behind me, and before me; and thou hast set thy hand upon me.) NIV 5 You hem me in--behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. WYC 6 Thy knowing is made wonderful of me; it is comforted, and I shall not be able to it. (Thy abundant knowledge is so wonderful to me; yea, it is so very great, and I shall never be able to comprehend it all.) NIV 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. WYC 7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit; and whither shall I flee from thy face? (Where shall I go from thy spirit; and where shall I flee from thy presence?) NIV 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? WYC 8 If I shall ascend into heaven, thou art there; if I shall go down into hell, thou art present. (If I shall go up into heaven, thou art there; if I shall go down into Sheol, or into the land of the dead, thou art there also.) NIV 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. WYC 9 If I shall take my feathers full early; and shall dwell in the last parts of the sea. (If I shall take flight early in the morning; or if I shall live on the farthest edge, or the coast, of the sea.) NIV 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, WYC 10 And soothly thither thine hand shall lead me forth; and thy right hand shall hold me. (Even there thy hand shall lead me forth; and thy right hand shall keep me safe.) NIV 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. WYC 11 And I said, In hap darknesses shall defoul me; and the night is my lightening in my delights. (And I said, Perhaps the darkness shall cover me; or the light all around me shall become my night.) NIV 11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," WYC 12 For why darknesses shall not be made dark from thee, and the night shall be lightened as the day; as the darknesses thereof, so and the light thereof. (But the darkness shall not be dark for thee, and the night shall be like the daylight; yea, to you, the darkness is no different than the light.) 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. WYC 13 For thou haddest in possession my reins; thou tookest me up from the womb of my mother. (For thou haddest my reins in thy possession/For thou formedest my inner parts; yea, thou madest me in my mother's womb.) NIV 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. WYC 14 I shall acknowledge to thee, for thou art magnified dreadfully; thy works be wonderful, and my soul shall know (that) full much. (I shall praise thee, for thou art greatly to be feared/for thou hath filled me with awe; thy works be wonderful, and I truly know that.) NIV 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. WYC 15 My bone, which thou madest in private, is not hid from thee; and my substance (formed) in the lower parts of earth. (My bones, which thou madest in secret, be not a mystery to thee; yea, when my substance was formed in the lower parts 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, WYC 16 Thine eyes saw mine unperfect thing, and all men shall be written in thy book; days shall be formed, and no man is in those. (Thine eyes saw my imperfect substance, and all was written in thy Book; but when those days were formed, no man was there.) 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. WYC 17 Forsooth, God, thy friends be made honourable full much to me; the princehood of them is comforted full much. (But, God, how deep be thy thoughts to me; and how many of them there be!) NIV 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! WYC 18 I shall number them, and they shall be multiplied above the gravel; I rose up, and yet I am with thee. (If I tried to count them all up, their number would be more than all the grains of sand. And then I awake; and still I am with thee.) NIV 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. WYC 19 For thou, God, shalt slay sinners; ye men-quellers, bow away from me. (O God, I wish that thou wouldest kill the sinners; ye murderers, go far away from me!) NIV 19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God! Away from me, you bloodthirsty men! WYC 20 For they say in thought; Take they their cities in vanity. (For out loud they say against thee, We shall take thy name in vain.) NIV 20 They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. WYC 21 Lord, whether I hated not them that hated thee; and I failed, that is, mourned greatly, on (those who be) thine enemies? (Lord, how I hate those who hate thee; and I am greatly grieved by those who be thy enemies!) NIV 21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD, and abhor those who rise up against you? WYC 22 By perfect hatred I hated them; they were made enemies to me. (Yea, with perfect hatred I hate them; they be made my enemies too.) NIV 22 I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies. WYC 23 God, prove thou me, and know thou mine heart; ask thou me, and know thou my paths. (God, assay, or test, thou me, and know thou my heart; ask thou me, and know thou my thoughts.) NIV 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. WYC 24 And see thou, if way of wickedness is in me; and lead thou me forth in [the] everlasting way. (And see thou, if there be found any way of wickedness in me; and then lead thou me forth in the everlasting way.) NIV 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
