PS 139:1 To the Overseer. -- A Psalm by David. Jehovah, Thou hast searched me, and knowest.
PS 139:2 Thou -- Thou hast known my sitting down, And my rising up, Thou hast attended to my thoughts from afar.
PS 139:3 My path and my couch Thou hast fanned, And `with' all my ways hast been acquainted.
PS 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, Lo, O Jehovah, Thou hast known it all!
PS 139:5 Behind and before Thou hast besieged me, And Thou dost place on me Thy hand.
PS 139:6 Knowledge too wonderful for me, It hath been set on high, I am not able for it.
PS 139:7 Whither do I go from Thy Spirit? And whither from Thy face do I flee?
PS 139:8 If I ascend the heavens -- there Thou `art', And spread out a couch in Sheol, lo, Thee!
PS 139:9 I take the wings of morning, I dwell in the uttermost part of the sea,
PS 139:10 Also there Thy hand doth lead me, And Thy right hand doth hold me.
PS 139:11 And I say, `Surely darkness bruiseth me, Then night `is' light to me.
PS 139:12 Also darkness hideth not from Thee, And night as day shineth, as `is' darkness so `is' light.
PS 139:13 For Thou -- Thou hast possessed my reins, Thou dost cover me in my mother's belly.
PS 139:14 I confess Thee, because that `with' wonders I have been distinguished. Wonderful `are' Thy works, And my soul is knowing `it' well.
PS 139:15 My substance was not hid from Thee, When I was made in secret, Curiously wrought in the lower part of earth.
PS 139:16 Mine unformed substance Thine eyes saw, And on Thy book all of them are written, The days they were formed -- And not one among them.
PS 139:17 And to me how precious have been Thy thoughts, O God, how great hath been their sum!
PS 139:18 I recount them! than the sand they are more, I have waked, and I am still with Thee.
PS 139:19 Dost Thou slay, O God, the wicked? Then, men of blood, turn aside from me!
PS 139:20 Who exchange Thee for wickedness, Lifted up to vanity `are' Thine enemies.
PS 139:21 Do not I hate, Jehovah, those hating Thee? And with Thy withstanders grieve myself?
PS 139:22 `With' perfect hatred I have hated them, Enemies they have become to me.
PS 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart, Try me, and know my thoughts,
PS 139:24 And see if a grievous way be in me, And lead me in a way age-during!
