FC: Reflections from Psalm 139
1: Dedicated to our Mom and Nana Diana Curren Bennett Who has shared with us her love for God's Word... and for Deer Isle, Maine October 19, 2010
2: O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
5: You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, you know it completely, O Lord.
6: You hem me in -- behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
9: Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
10: If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
12: If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
14: For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
17: My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.
19: All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
20: How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
23: Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
25: When I awake, I am still with you.
