13 For you created my inmost being;(A)
    you knit me together(B) in my mother’s womb.(C)
14 I praise you(D) because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,(E)
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made(F) in the secret place,
    when I was woven together(G) in the depths of the earth.(H)
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained(I) for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a](J) God!(K)
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,(L)
    they would outnumber the grains of sand(M)
    when I awake,(N) I am still with you.

19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!(O)
    Away from me,(P) you who are bloodthirsty!(Q)
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
    your adversaries(R) misuse your name.(S)
21 Do I not hate those(T) who hate you, Lord,
    and abhor(U) those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
    I count them my enemies.(V)
23 Search me,(W) God, and know my heart;(X)
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way(Y) in me,
    and lead me(Z) in the way everlasting.
