Psalms 139

David praiseth God for his allseeing providence,

Psalms 139:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid.} O Lord, thou hast tried me and knowen me. Psalms 139:2 Thou knowest my sitting and my rising: thou vnderstandest my thought afarre off. Psalms 139:3 Thou compassest my pathes, and my lying downe, and art accustomed to all my wayes. Psalms 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but loe, thou knowest it wholy, O Lord. Psalms 139:5 Thou holdest mee straite behinde and before, and layest thine hand vpon me. Psalms 139:6 Thy knowledge is too wonderfull for mee: it is so high that I cannot attaine vnto it. Psalms 139:7 Whither shall I goe from thy Spirite? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? Psalms 139:8 If I ascende into heauen, thou art there: if I lye downe in hell, thou art there. Psalms 139:9 Let mee take the winges of the morning, and dwell in the vttermost parts of the sea: Psalms 139:10 Yet thither shall thine hand leade me, and thy right hand holde me. Psalms 139:11 If I say, Yet the darkenes shal hide me, euen the night shalbe light about me. Psalms 139:12 Yea, the darkenes hideth not from thee: but the night shineth as the day: the darkenes and light are both alike. Psalms 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reines: thou hast couered me in my mothers wombe. Psalms 139:14 I will praise thee, for I am fearefully and wonderously made: marueilous are thy workes, and my soule knoweth it well. Psalms 139:15 My bones are not hid from thee, though I was made in a secret place, and facioned beneath in the earth. Psalms 139:16 Thine eyes did see me, when I was without forme: for in thy booke were all things written, which in continuance were facioned, when there was none of them before.

and for his infinite mercies.

Psalms 139:17 Howe deare therefore are thy thoughtes vnto me, O God! how great is ye summe of them! Psalms 139:18 If I should count them, they are moe then the sand: when I wake, I am still with thee.

He defieth the wicked.

Psalms 139:19 Oh that thou wouldest slay, O God, the wicked and bloody men, to whom I say, Depart ye from mee: Psalms 139:20 Which speake wickedly of thee, and being thine enemies are lifted vp in vaine. Psalms 139:21 Doe not I hate them, O Lorde, that hate thee? and doe not I earnestly contend with those that rise vp against thee? Psalms 139:22 I hate them with an vnfained hatred, as they were mine vtter enemies.

He prayeth for sincerety.

Psalms 139:23 Try mee, O God, and knowe mine heart: prooue me and know my thoughtes, Psalms 139:24 And consider if there be any way of wickednes in me, and leade me in the way for euer.
