Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 (138-1) ^^ To the chief of the choir. Psalm of David. ^^ Lord! You tested me and you know.
2 (138-2) Do you know when I sit down and when I get up; You understand my thoughts from afar.
3 (138-3) Whether I am going, whether I am resting, You surround me, and all my paths are known to You.
4 (138-4) There is still no word in my tongue, --You, Lord, already know it perfectly.
5 (138-5) From behind and from the front, you embrace me, and you lay your hand on me.
6 (138-6) It is marvelous for me to know [Thy], - high, I cannot comprehend it!

7 (138-7) Where will I go from Your Spirit, and from your face where will I flee?
eight (138-8) Whether I ascend to heaven - You are there; Will I go down to hell - and there You are.
nine (138-9) Will I take the wings of dawn and move to the edge of the sea, -
ten (138-10) and there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will keep me.
eleven (138-11) I will say: `maybe the darkness will hide me, and the light around me [will be] at night”;
12 (138-12) but even darkness will not eclipse from You, and the night is bright as day: both darkness and light.
13 (138-13) For You have built my entrails and weaved me in the womb of my mother.
fourteen (138-14) I will glorify you because I am marvelously arranged. Your affairs are marvelous, and my soul is fully aware of this.
fifteen (138-15) My bones were not hidden from You, when I was creating in secret, we were forming in the depths of the womb.
16 (138-16) Thy eyes saw my germ; in your book are written all the days appointed for me, when not one of them was not yet.

17 (138-17) How lofty are your thoughts for me, God, and how great are their numbers!
18 (138-18) Will I begin to number them, but they are more numerous than sand; when i wake up i'm still with you.
19 (138-19) Oh, if You, God, would smite the wicked! Get away from me, bloodthirsty!
20 (138-20) They speak against you wickedly; Thy enemies are plotting the vain.
21 (138-21) Should I not hate those who hate you, Lord, and not abhor the rebels against you?
22 (138-22) I hate them with complete hatred: they are my enemies.
23 (138-23) Test me, God, and know my heart; try me and know my thoughts;
24 (138-24) and see if I am on a dangerous path, and direct me on the eternal path.
