Psalms 139

David praiseth God for his allseeing providence,

Psalms 139:1 {To the chiefe musition, a psalme of Dauid.} O God thou hast searched me to the quicke: and thou hast knowen me. Psalms 139:2 Thou knowest my downe sitting & myne vprising: thou vnderstandest my thoughtes long before they be. Psalms 139:3 Thou compassest about my path, and my iourney into all coastes: and thou vsest all my wayes. Psalms 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue: but beholde thou O Lorde knowest it altogether. Psalms 139:5 Thou hast fashioned me behinde and before: and layde thyne hande vpon me. Psalms 139:6 The knowledge that [thou hast] of me is marueylous: it is so high that I can not [attayne] vnto it. Psalms 139:7 Whyther can I go from thy spirite: or whyther can I flee away from thy face? Psalms 139:8 If I ascende vp into heauen, thou art there: if I lay me downe in hell, thou art there also. Psalms 139:9 If I take the wynges of the morning: and [go to] dwell in the vttermost part of the sea. Psalms 139:10 Euen there also thy hande shall leade me: and thy right hande shall holde me. Psalms 139:11 And yf I say peraduenture the darknesse shall couer me: and the night shalbe day for me, Psalms 139:12 Truely the darknesse shall not darken any thing from thee, and the night shalbe as lyghtsome as the day: darknesse and lyght [to thee] are both a lyke. Psalms 139:13 For thou hast my reynes in thy possession: thou didst couer me in my mothers wombe. Psalms 139:14 I wyll confesse it vnto thee, for that thy [doynges] are to be dreaded, I am made after a marueylous sort: thy workes be marueylous, and that my soule knoweth ryght well. Psalms 139:15 The substaunce of my [body] was not hyd from thee: when I was made in secrete and fashioned with distinct members in my mothers wombe. Psalms 139:16 Thyne eyes dyd see me when I was most imperfect: and in thy booke were written euery day of them [wherin the partes of my body] were shaped, and no one of them were knowen vnto thee.

and for his infinite mercies.

Psalms 139:17 Howe pretious be thy cogitations towardes me O God? howe greatly be the summe of them increased? Psalms 139:18 I go about to count them, I fynde that they are mo in number then the sande: and yet whyle I am wakyng I am styll with thee.

He defieth the wicked.

Psalms 139:19 For truely thou wylt slay O Lord the wicked man: and the blood thirstie men [to whom I euer say] depart ye from me. Psalms 139:20 Who do speake vnto thee in guilefull maner: [thou art O God] exalted in vayne to thyne enemies. Psalms 139:21 Do not I hate them O God that hate thee? and am not I greeued with those that rise vp agaynst thee? Psalms 139:22 Yea I hate them from the bottome of myne heart: euen as though they were myne enemies.

He prayeth for sincerety.

Psalms 139:23 Searche me to the quicke O Lorde, and knowe thou myne heart: proue me and knowe thou my thoughtes. Psalms 139:24 And loke well yf there be any way of peruersnesse in me: and [then] leade me in the way of the worlde.
