To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known .
2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted all my ways.
4 For not a word in my tongue, , lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
6 knowledge too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot unto it.
7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou .
9 I take the wings of the morning, dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light both alike .
13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully wonderfully made: marvellous thy works; and my soul knoweth right well.

Verse 14 ToDo Items
15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all were written, in continuance were fashioned, when none of them.
17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
18 I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
20 For they speak against thee wickedly, thine enemies take in vain.
21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
