Psalm 139

1  O Lord, you have searched me out and known me; 
   you know my sitting down and my rising up;
      you discern my thoughts from afar.
2  You mark out my journeys and my resting place 
   and are acquainted with all my ways.
3  For there is not a word on my tongue, 
   but you, O Lord, know it altogether.
4  You encompass me behind and before 
   and lay your hand upon me.
5  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, 
   so high that I cannot attain it.
6  Where can I go then from your spirit? 
   Or where can I flee from your presence?
7  If I climb up to heaven, you are there; 
   if I make the grave my bed, you are there also.
8  If I take the wings of the morning 
   and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
9  Even there your hand shall lead me, 
   your right hand hold me fast.
10  If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will cover me 
   and the light around me turn to night,’
11  Even darkness is no darkness with you;
      the night is as clear as the day; 
   darkness and light to you are both alike.
12  For you yourself created my inmost parts; 
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
23  Search me out, O God, and know my heart; 
   try me and examine my thoughts.
24  See if there is any way of wickedness in me 
   and lead me in the way everlasting.
