To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David

 

David praises the Lord for his providence and mercies
Psalm 139:1 O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Psalm 139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Psalm 139:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
Psalm 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.
Psalm 139:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Psalm 139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
Psalm 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
Psalm 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
Psalm 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Psalm 139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
Psalm 139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
Psalm 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
Psalm 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Psalm 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Psalm 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
Psalm 139:18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
Psalm 139:19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
Psalm 139:20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
Psalm 139:21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
Psalm 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
David's prayer for sincerity
Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
Psalm 139:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
