Psalms 139:7-8

7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

Psalms 139:7-8 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 139:7-8 In-Context

5 You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
