Chapter 138

1

 

 Lord, thou hast proved me, and known me: 

 

 


2

 

 thou hast know my sitting down, and my rising up. 

 

 


3

 

 Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off: my path and my line thou hast searched out. 

 

 


4

 

 And thou hast foreseen all my ways: for there is no speech in my tongue. 

 

 


5

 

 Behold, O Lord, thou hast known all things, the last and those of old: thou hast formed me, and hast laid thy hand upon me. 

 

 


6

 

 Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me: it is high, and I cannot reach to it. 

 

 


7

 

 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy face? 

 

 


8

 

 If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: if I descend into hell, thou art present. 

 

 


9

 

 If I take my wings early in the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea: 

 

 


10

 

 Even there also shall thy hand lead me: and thy right hand shall hold me. 

 

 


11

 

 And I said: Perhaps darkness shall cover me: and night shall be my light in my pleasures. 

 

 


12

 

 But darkness shall not be dark to thee, and night shall be light as day: the darkness thereof, and the light thereof are alike to thee. 

 

 


13

 

 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast protected me from my mother's womb. 

 

 


14

 

 I will praise thee, for thou art fearfully magnified: wonderful are thy works, and my soul knoweth right well. 

 

 


15

 

 My bone is not hidden from thee, which thou hast made in secret: and my substance in the lower parts of the earth. 

 

 


16

 

 Thy eyes did see my imperfect being, and in thy book all shall be written: days shall be formed, and no one in them. 

 

 


17

 

 But to me thy friends, O God, are made exceedingly honourable: their principality is exceedingly strengthened. 

 

 


18

 

 I will number them, and they shall be multiplied above the sand: I rose up and am still with thee. 

 

 


19

 

 If thou wilt kill the wicked, O God: ye men of blood, depart from me: 

 

 


20

 

 Because you say in thought: They shall receive thy cities in vain. 

 

 


21

 

 Have I not hated them, O Lord, that hated thee: and pine away because of thy enemies? 

 

 


22

 

 I have hated them with a perfect hatred: and they are become enemies to me. 

 

 


23

 

 Prove me, O God, and know my heart: examine me, and know my paths. 

 

 


24

 

 And see if there be in me the way of iniquity: and lead me in the eternal way.
