Psalm 139

The Inescapable God

To the leader. Of David. A Psalm.

    you discern my thoughts from far away.(B)
You search out my path and my lying down
    and are acquainted with all my ways.(C)

    and lay your hand upon me.(E)
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
    it is so high that I cannot attain it.(F)
