Psalm 139:13-16 The Passion Translation (TPT)

13 You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside
and my intricate outside,
and wove them all together in my mother’s womb.[a]
14 I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex!
Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking.
It simply amazes me to think about it!
How thoroughly you know me, Lord!
15 You even formed every bone in my body
when you created me in the secret place,[b]
carefully, skillfully shaping me[c] from nothing to something.
16 You saw who you created me to be before I became me![d]
Before I’d ever seen the light of day,
the number of days you planned for me
were already recorded in your book.[e]


  1. Psalm 139:13 The Hebrew word for “knit” or “wove” can also be translated “to cover” or “to defend.” God places an eternal spirit inside the conceived child within the womb of a mother and covers that life, sends the child a guardian angel, and watches over him or her.
  2. Psalm 139:15 The Hebrew text is literally “the depths of the earth.”
  3. Psalm 139:15 Or “embroidered me.”
  4. Psalm 139:16 The Hebrew could be translated “as an embryo.”
  5. Psalm 139:16 See Ps. 69:28.
