To the chiefH5329 Musician,H5329 A PsalmH4210 of David.H1732 O lord,H3068 you have searchedH2713 me, and knownH3045 me.
You knowH3045 my sitting downH3427 and my rising up,H6965 you understandH995 my thoughtH7454 afarH7350 off.
You compassH2219 my pathH734 and my lyingH7252 down,H7252 and are acquaintedH5532 with allH3605 my ways.H1870
For there is not a wordH4405 in my tongue,H3956 but, see,H2005 O LORD,H3068 you knowH3045 it altogether.H3605
You have besetH6696 me behindH268 and before,H6924 and laidH7896 your handH3709 on me.
Such knowledgeH1847 is too wonderfulH6383 for me; it is high,H7682 I cannotH3808 H3201 attain to it.
WhereH575 shall I goH3212 from your spirit?H7307 or whereH575 shall I fleeH1272 from your presence?H6440
IfH518 I ascendH5927 up into heaven,H8064 you are there:H8033 if I makeH3331 my bedH3331 in hell,H7585 behold,H2009 you are there.
If I takeH5375 the wingsH3671 of the morning,H7837 and dwellH7931 in the uttermostH319 parts of the sea;H3220
EvenH1571 thereH8033 shall your handH3027 leadH5148 me, and your rightH3225 handH3225 shall holdH270 me.
If I say,H559 SurelyH389 the darknessH2822 shall coverH7779 me; even the nightH3915 shall be lightH216 aboutH1157 me.
Yes,H1571 the darknessH2822 hidesH2821 not from you; but the nightH3915 shinesH215 as the day:H3117 the darknessH2825 and the lightH219 are both alike to you.
For you have possessedH7069 my reins:H3629 you have coveredH5526 me in my mother'sH517 womb.H990
I will praiseH3034 you; for I am fearfullyH3372 and wonderfullyH6395 made: marvelousH6381 are your works;H4639 and that my soulH5315 knowsH3045 rightH3966 well.
My substanceH6108 was not hidH3582 from you, whenH834 I was madeH6213 in secret,H5643 and curiouslyH7551 workedH7551 in the lowestH8482 parts of the earth.H776
Your eyesH5869 did seeH7200 my substance,H1564 yet being imperfect; and in your bookH5612 allH3605 my members were written,H3789 which in continuanceH3117 were fashioned,H3335 when as yet there was noneH3808 H259 of them.
HowH4100 preciousH3365 also are your thoughtsH7454 to me, O God!H410 howH4100 greatH6105 is the sumH7218 of them!
If I should countH5608 them, they are moreH7235 in number than the sand:H2344 when I awake,H6974 I am stillH5750 with you.
SurelyH518 you will slayH6991 the wicked,H7563 O God:H433 departH5493 from me therefore, you bloodyH1818 men.H582
For they speakH559 against you wickedly,H4209 and your enemiesH6145 takeH5375 your name in vain.H7723
Do not I hateH8130 them, O LORD,H3068 that hateH8130 you? and am not I grievedH6962 with those that riseH8618 up against you?
I hateH8130 them with perfectH8503 hatred:H8135 I countH1961 them my enemies.H341
SearchH2713 me, O God,H410 and knowH3045 my heart:H3824 tryH974 me, and knowH3045 my thoughts:H8312
And seeH7200 ifH518 there be any wickedH6090 wayH1870 in me, and leadH5148 me in the wayH1870 everlasting.H5769
