New International Version
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.
- Psalm 139:17 Or How amazing are your thoughts concerning me
