Psalms 139

David praiseth God for his allseeing providence,

Psalms 139:1 {For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} O Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known [me]. Psalms 139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising; Thou understandest my thought afar off. Psalms 139:3 Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, And art acquainted with all my ways. Psalms 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, But, lo, O Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether. Psalms 139:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, And laid thy hand upon me. Psalms 139:6 [Such] knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain unto it. Psalms 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? Psalms 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou art there. Psalms 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Psalms 139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, And thy right hand shall hold me. Psalms 139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall overwhelm me, And the light about me shall be night; Psalms 139:12 Even the darkness hideth not from thee, But the night shineth as the day: The darkness and the light are both alike [to thee]. Psalms 139:13 For thou didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my mother's womb. Psalms 139:14 I will give thanks unto thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms 139:15 My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, [And] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Psalms 139:16 Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, [Even] the days that were ordained [for me], When as yet there was none of them.

and for his infinite mercies.

Psalms 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! Psalms 139:18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: When I awake, I am still with thee.

He defieth the wicked.

Psalms 139:19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: Depart from me therefore, ye bloodthirsty men. Psalms 139:20 For they speak against thee wickedly, And thine enemies take [thy name] in vain. Psalms 139:21 Do not I hate them, O Jehovah, that hate thee? And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? Psalms 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: They are become mine enemies.

He prayeth for sincerety.

Psalms 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts; Psalms 139:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.
