PS 138:1 Lord, thou hast proved me, and known me:

PS 138:2 thou hast know my sitting down, and my rising up.

PS 138:3 Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off: my path and my line thou hast searched out.

PS 138:4 And thou hast foreseen all my ways: for there is no speech in my tongue.

PS 138:5 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.

PS 138:6 Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me: it is high, and I cannot reach to it.

PS 138:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy face?

PS 138:8 If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: if I descend into hell, thou art present.

PS 138:9 If I take my wings early in the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea:

PS 138:10 Even there also shall thy hand lead me: and thy right hand shall hold me.

PS 138:11 And I said: Perhaps darkness shall cover me: and night shall be my light in my pleasures.

PS 138:12 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.

PS 138:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast protected me from my mother’s womb.

PS 138:14 I will praise thee, for thou art fearfully magnified: wonderful are thy works, and my soul knoweth right well.

PS 138:15 My bone is not hidden from thee, which thou hast made in secret: and my substance in the lower parts of the earth.

PS 138:16 Thy eyes did see my imperfect being, and in thy book all shall be written: days shall be formed, and no one in them.

PS 138:17 But to me thy friends, O God, are made exceedingly honourable: their principality is exceedingly strengthened.

PS 138:18 I will number them, and they shall be multiplied above the sand: I rose up and am still with thee.

PS 138:19 If thou wilt kill the wicked, O God: ye men of blood, depart from me:

PS 138:20 Because you say in thought: They shall receive thy cities in vain.

PS 138:21 Have I not hated them, O Lord, that hated thee: and pine away because of thy enemies?

PS 138:22 I have hated them with a perfect hatred: and they are become enemies to me.

PS 138:23 Prove me, O God, and know my heart: examine me, and know my paths.

PS 138:24 And see if there be in me the way of iniquity: and lead me in the eternal way.
