God’s Omnipresence and Omniscience.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
1O Lord, Thou hast searched me and known me.
2Thou dost know when I sit down and when I rise up;
3Thou dost scrutinize my path and my lying down,
4Even before there is a word on my tongue,
5Thou hast enclosed me behind and before,
6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
7Where can I go from Thy Spirit?
8If I ascend to heaven, Thou art there;
9If I take the wings of the dawn,
10Even there Thy hand will lead me,
11If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
12Even the darkness is not dark to Thee,
13For Thou didst form my inward parts;
14I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
15My frame was not hidden from Thee,
16Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance;
17How precious also are Thy thoughts to me, O God!
18If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
19O that Thou wouldst slay the wicked, O God;
20For they speak against Thee wickedly,
21Do I not hate those who hate Thee, O LORD?
22I hate them with the utmost hatred;
23Search me, O God, and know my heart;
24And see if there be any hurtful way in me,
