Psalms 139

Psalms 139

O Lord, you have searched me, and known me.

You know when I down and when I rise up; you discern my

thoughts from afar.

 You search out my path and my lying down, and are

acquainted with all my ways.

Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord,

you know it altogether.

You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your

hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I

cannot attain unto it.

Where shall I go from thy spirit? Or where shall I

flee from thy presence?

If I ascended up into heaven, you are there: if I make my

bed in hell, behold, you are there.

If I take the wings of the morning and dwell

 in the uttermost parts of the sea;

even there shall your hand lead me,

 and your right hand shall hold me.

If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,

and the light about be night.”

even the darkness is not dark to you;

 the night is bright as the day,

for darkness is as light with you.

For you formed my inward parts;

you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made

Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in secret,

 intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written,

every one of them, 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 the sand.

I awake, and I am still with you.

Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!

O men of blood, depart from me!

They speak against you with malicious intent;

your enemies take your name in vain.

Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord?

And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?

I hate them with complete hatred;

I count them my enemies.

Search me, O God, and know my heart!

Try me and know my thoughts!

And see if there be any grievous way in me,

And lead me in the way everlasting!


This is such an amazing chapter in scripture. To truly understand God’s love for us we only need to look here.

To understand that God, knowing dang well what bad word we will say or what bad deed we will do next, still loves us despite ourselves. He knows our thoughts before we think them.

To know that no matter where we are God IS with us!

To understand that despite our thoughts on or about ourselves that God created us in our mothers womb perfectly. We are created by God…it doesn’t matter what the world thinks of us or says about us.

He sees all, yet cares for each of us ever so gently. He guides us through life with love and discipline, for His hand is constantly upon us.

Search me, O God, and know my heart!

Try me and know my thoughts!

And see if there be any grievous way in me,

And lead me in the way everlasting!
