Psalm 139

1 ¶ To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. O Jehovah, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know my sitting down, and my rising up; You understand my thought from afar off.
3 You sift my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For not a word is on my tongue, but, lo, O Jehovah, You know it all.
5 You have closed me in behind, and in front, and Your hand is laid on me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is set on high; I am not able to reach it.
7 ¶ Where shall I go from Your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from Your face?
8 If I go up to Heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there!
9 If I take the wings of the morning, dwelling in the uttermost part of the sea,
10 even there Your hand shall lead me; and Your right hand shall seize me.
11 If I say: Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light around me.
12 Even the darkness will not be dark from You, but the night shines as the day; as is the darkness, so is the light.
