Psalm 139

God's Omnipresence and Omniscience.

1 O LORD, You have 1searched me and known me.
2 You 2know when I sit down and when I rise up; You 3understand my thought from afar.
3 You 4scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You 5know it all.
5 You have 6enclosed me behind and before, And 7laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such 8knowledge is 9too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot * attain to it.
7 10Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 11If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, 12You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will 13lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11 If I say, "Surely the 14darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,"
12 Even the 15darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. 16Darkness and light are alike to You.
13 For You 17formed my inward parts; You 18wove me in my mother's womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 19Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
15 My 20frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the 21depths of the earth;
16 Your 22eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in 23Your book were all written The 24days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
17 How precious also are Your 25thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would 26outnumber the sand. When 27I awake, I am still with You.
19 O that You would 28slay the wicked, O God; 29Depart from me, therefore, 30men of bloodshed.
20 For they 31speak against You wickedly, And Your enemies 32take Your name in vain.
21 Do I not 33hate those who hate You, O LORD? And do I not 34loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with the utmost hatred; They have become my enemies.
23 35Search me, O God, and know my heart; 36Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
24 And see if there be any 37hurtful way in me, And 38lead me in the 39everlasting way.
