66. Psalm 139- The Prayer of a believing heart

O YHWH, You Have Searched me and Know me! You Know when I sit down and when I rise up, You Discern my thoughts from afar. You Search Out my path and my lying down, You Are Acquainted With all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, lo, O Lord, You Know it altogether. You Do Beset me behind and before, You Lay Your Hand Upon me. And Your Knowledge is Too Wonderful for me, yea it is High, I cannot fathom it. Whither shall I go from Your Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from Your Presence? If I ascend to Heaven, You Are there! If I make my bed in a grave, You Are There! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your Hand Shall Lead me and Your Right Hand Shall Hold me. If I say: “Let only darkness cover me and the light about me be night,” even the darkness is not dark to You and the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light With You. And You Did Form my inward parts, You Did Knit me Together in my mothers’ womb. I praise You, for You Are Fearful and Wonderful. Wonderful are Your Works! You Know me Right Well, my frame was not hidden from You when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought from carbon 12 in the depths of the Earth. Your Eyes Beheld my unformed substance, in Your Books were written, prophesied every bit of me, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are Your Thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than granules of sand on Earth. When I awake, I am still with You. For certain You Shall Slay the wicked, O God and hence the bloody ones will depart from me, fools who think they defy You. Those who think they are great and take Your Name in vain. Do I not hate them that hate You, O Lord? Yea do I not loathe fools that rise up against You? Yea I hate them with perfect hatred, I count them my enemies. So Search me, O God and Know my heart! Try me and Know my thoughts! See if there be any wicked way in me then Lead me To Your Way Everlasting!
