Psalm - Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 139.1-5, 139.12-18
1 O Lord, you have searched me out and known me:
you know when I sit or when I stand,
you comprehend my thoughts long before.
2 You discern my path and the places where I rest:
you are acquainted with all my ways.
3 For there is not a word on my tongue:
but you, Lord, know it altogether.
4 You have encompassed me behind and before:
and have laid your hand upon me.
5 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me:
so high that I cannot endure it.
12 For you have created my inward parts:
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
13 I will praise you, for you are to be feared:
fearful are your acts, and wonderful your works.
14 You knew my soul,
and my bones were not hidden from you:
when I was formed in secret,
and woven in the depths of the earth.
15 Your eyes saw my limbs when they were yet imperfect:
and in your book were all my members written;
16 Day by day they were fashioned:
and not one was late in growing.
17 How deep are your thoughts to me, O God:
and how great is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they are more in number than the sand:
were I to come to the end, I would still be with you.
