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.
