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.
