(A)Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
(B)If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in [a]Sheol, behold, (C)You are there.
If I take up the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will (D)lead me,
And Your right hand will take hold of me.
11 If I say, “Surely the (E)darkness will [b]overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”
12 Even (F)darkness is not dark [c]to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
(G)Darkness and light are alike to You.
