Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
King James Bible
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
American Standard Version
Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
Young's Literal Translation
Whither do I go from Thy Spirit? And whither from Thy face do I flee?
Psalm 139:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? - Surely רוח ruach in this sense must be taken personally, it certainly cannot mean either breath or wind; to render it so would make the passage ridiculous.
From thy presence? - מפניך mippaneycha, "from thy faces." Why do we meet with this word so frequently in the plural number, when applied to God? And why have we his Spirit, and his appearances or faces, both here? A Trinitarian would at once say, "The plurality of persons in the Godhead is intended;" and who can prove that he is mistaken?
