Psalm 139


God's Omnipresence and Omniscience.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

Psalm 139:1   O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
Psalm 139:2   You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar.
Psalm 139:3   You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
Psalm 139:4   Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all.
Psalm 139:5   You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
Psalm 139:6   Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
Psalm 139:7   Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
Psalm 139:8   If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
Psalm 139:9   If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
Psalm 139:10   Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
Psalm 139:11   If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,"
Psalm 139:12   Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.
Psalm 139:13   For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb.
Psalm 139:14   I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
Psalm 139:15   My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Psalm 139:16   Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
Psalm 139:17   How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Psalm 139:18   If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.
Psalm 139:19   O that You would slay the wicked, O God; Depart from me, therefore, men of bloodshed.
Psalm 139:20   For they speak against You wickedly, And Your enemies take Your name in vain.
Psalm 139:21   Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
Psalm 139:22   I hate them with the utmost hatred; They have become my enemies.
Psalm 139:23   Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
Psalm 139:24   And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.
