1  You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. (NIV)

3  You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. (NLT)

4  You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD. (NLT)

13  For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. (NIV)

14  I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. (ESV)

23  Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! (ESV)

24  Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (NLT)

5  You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. (NLT)

7  Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? (NASB)

8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. (NIV)

9  If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, (NLT) 10  even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. (NLT)

Psalm 139 (NIV)

1  You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.

2  You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

3  You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.

4  Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.

5  You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.

6  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

7  Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

8  If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

9  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,

10  even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

11  If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”

12  even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

13  For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

15  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

16  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

17  How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

18  Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.

19  If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!

20  They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name.

21  Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?

22  I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies.

23  Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24  See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
