    Psalms 139
    King James Version

    1 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
    2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising,
    thou understandest my thought afar off.​
    3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down,
    and art acquainted with all my ways.​
    4 For there is not a word in my tongue,
    but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.​
    5 Thou hast beset me behind and before,
    and laid thine hand upon me.​
    6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
    it is high, I cannot attain unto it.​

    7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit?
    or whither shall I flee from thy presence?​
    8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:
    if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.​
    9 If I take the wings of the morning,
    and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;​
    10 Even there shall thy hand lead me,
    and thy right hand shall hold me.​
    11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me;
    even the night shall be light about me.​
    12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee;
    but the night shineth as the day:
    the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.​

    13 For thou hast possessed my reins:
    thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.​
    14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
    marvellous are thy works;
    and that my soul knoweth right well.​
    15 My substance was not hid from thee,
    when I was made in secret,
    and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.​
    16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
    and in thy book all my members were written,
    which in continuance were fashioned,
    when as yet there was none of them.​

    17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!
    how great is the sum of them!​
    18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand:
    when I awake, I am still with thee.​

    19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God:
    depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.​
    20 For they speak against thee wickedly,
    and thine enemies take thy name in vain.​
    21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee?
    and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?​
    22 I hate them with perfect hatred:
    I count them mine enemies.​

    23 Search me, O God, and know my heart:
    try me, and know my thoughts:​
    24 And see if there be any wicked way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.
