God’s Beautiful Word

“O Lord, You have searched me and known me.

You know when I sit down and when I rise up;

You understand my thought from afar.

You scrutinize my path and my lying down,

And you are intimately acquainted with all my ways.

Even before there is a word on my tongue,

Behold, O Lord, You know it all.

You have enclosed me behind and before;

And laid Your hand upon me.

You hem me in

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;

It is too high, I cannot attain to it.

 

 

Where can I go from Your Spirit?

Or where can I flee from Your presence?

If I ascend to heaven, You are there;

If I make my bed in the nether world, behold, You are there.

If I take the wings of the dawn,

If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,

Even there Your hand will lead me,

And Your right hand will lay hold of me.

If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,’

Even the darkness is not dark to You,

And the night is as bright as the day.

Darkness and light are alike to You.

fearfully and wonderfully made

 

For You formed my inward parts;

You wove me in my mother’s womb.

 

 

 

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

Wonderful are Your works, 

And my soul knows it very well.

My frame was not hidden from You,

When I was made in secret,

And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;

And in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.

I am never out of Your sight

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!

How vast are the sum of them!

If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.

When I awake, I am still with You.”

 

“Search me, O God, and know my heart;

Try me and know my anxious thoughts;

And see if there be any hurtful way in me,

And lead me in the everlasting way.”

 

 

Psalm 139: 1-18 and 23-24.
