Psalm 139:2-6

Search Me, O God, and Know My Heart

2 b You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You c understand my thought afar off.
3 d You 1 comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O LORD, e You know it altogether.
5 You have 2 hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 f Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.
