Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend into heaven, thou [art] there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou [art there].
[If] I take the wings of the morning, [and] dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
Yes, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light [are] both alike [to thee].
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee: for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: wonderful [are] thy works; and [that] my soul well knoweth.
My substance was not hid from thee when I was made in secret, [and] curiously formed in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thy eyes saw my substance, yet being imperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them.
How precious also are thy thoughts to me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
