Psalms 139

David praiseth God for his allseeing providence,

Psalms 139:1 {To the Chief Musician, David's. A Melody.} O Yahweh! thou hast searched me, and observed: Psalms 139:2 Thou, hast observed my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou hast given heed to my desire, from afar: Psalms 139:3 My path and my couch, hast thou examined, and, all my ways, thou well knowest. Psalms 139:4 Surely there hath not been a word on my tongue, [but] behold! O Yahweh, thou hast observed it on every side. Psalms 139:5 Behind and before, hast thou shut me in, and hast laid upon me thy hand:— Psalms 139:6 Knowledge, too wonderful, for me! high, I cannot attain to it! Psalms 139:7 Whither can I go from thy spirit? or whither, from thy face, can I flee? Psalms 139:8 If I ascend the heavens, there, thou art! If I spread out hades as my couch, behold thee! Psalms 139:9 If I mount the wings of the dawn, settle down in the region beyond the sea, Psalms 139:10 Even there, thy hand shall lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. Psalms 139:11 If I say, Surely, darkness, shall cover me! then, night, is light about me. Psalms 139:12 Even darkness, will not conceal from thee,—but, night, like day, will shine, So is the darkness, as the light! Psalms 139:13 For, thou, didst possess thyself of my reins, thou didst weave me together in the womb of my mother. Psalms 139:14 I thank thee, in that fearfully was my being distinguished, Wonderful are thy works, and, mine own soul, is observing [them] intently! Psalms 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee,—when I was made in secret, when I was skilfully figured in the lower parts of the earth. Psalms 139:16 Mine unfinished substance, thine eyes beheld, and, in thy book, all the parts thereof were written,—the days they should be fashioned! while yet there was not one among them.

and for his infinite mercies.

Psalms 139:17 To me, then, how precious have thy desires become, O GOD! How numerous, the heads of them! Psalms 139:18 I would recount them! Beyond the sands, they multiply, I rouse myself—and am still with thee.

He defieth the wicked.

Psalms 139:19 Wilt thou not, O GOD, slay the lawless one? Therefore, ye men of bloodshed, depart from me! Psalms 139:20 For they speak of thee wickedly, Thy foes lift up [their hand] unto falsehood. Psalms 139:21 Do I not hate, them who hate thee, O Yahweh? And loathe, them who rise up against thee? Psalms 139:22 With completeness of hatred, I hate them, As enemies, have they become to me.

He prayeth for sincerety.

Psalms 139:23 Search me, O GOD, and observe my heart, Try me, and observe my cares; Psalms 139:24 And see if there be any idol-way in me, and lead me in a way age-abiding.
