1לַ֭מְנַצֵּחַ לְדָוִ֣ד מִזְמ֑וֹר יְהוָ֥ה חֲ֝קַרְתַּ֗נִי וַתֵּדָֽע׃Ps 139:0-1
(0) ¶For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David. (1)
Yahweh, you have searched me,
and you know me.
2אַתָּ֣ה יָ֭דַעְתָּ שִׁבְתִּ֣י וְקוּמִ֑י בַּ֥נְתָּה לְ֝רֵעִ֗י מֵרָחֽוֹק׃Ps 139:2
You know my sitting down and my rising up.
You perceive my thoughts from afar.
3אָרְחִ֣י וְרִבְעִ֣י זֵרִ֑יתָ וְֽכָל־דְּרָכַ֥י הִסְכַּֽנְתָּה׃Ps 139:3
You search out my path and my lying down,
and are acquainted with all my ways.
4כִּ֤י אֵ֣ין מִ֭לָּה בִּלְשׁוֹנִ֑י הֵ֥ן יְ֝הוָ֗ה יָדַ֥עְתָּ כֻלָּֽהּ׃Ps 139:4
For there is not a word on my tongue,
but, behold, Yahweh, you know it altogether.
5אָח֣וֹר וָקֶ֣דֶם צַרְתָּ֑נִי וַתָּ֖שֶׁת עָלַ֣י כַּפֶּֽכָה׃Ps 139:5
You hem me in behind and before.
You laid your hand on me.
6‏{ פלאיה פְּלִ֣יאָֽה }‏ דַ֣עַת מִמֶּ֑נִּי נִ֝שְׂגְּבָ֗ה לֹא־א֥וּכַֽל לָֽהּ׃

Ketib: פלאיה ♦ Qere: פְּלִ֣יאָֽה
Ps 139:6
This knowledge is beyond me.
It’s lofty.
I can’t attain it.
7אָ֭נָ֥ה אֵלֵ֣ךְ מֵרוּחֶ֑ךָ וְ֝אָ֗נָה מִפָּנֶ֥יךָ אֶבְרָֽח׃Ps 139:7
Where could I go from your Spirit?
Or where could I flee from your presence?
8אִם־אֶסַּ֣ק שָׁ֭מַיִם שָׁ֣ם אָ֑תָּה וְאַצִּ֖יעָה שְּׁא֣וֹל הִנֶּֽךָּ׃Ps 139:8
If I ascend up into heaven, you are there.
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, you are there!
9אֶשָּׂ֥א כַנְפֵי־שָׁ֑חַר אֶ֝שְׁכְּנָ֗ה בְּאַחֲרִ֥ית יָֽם׃Ps 139:9
If I take the wings of the dawn,
and settle in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10גַּם־שָׁ֭ם יָדְךָ֣ תַנְחֵ֑נִי וְֽתֹאחֲזֵ֥נִי יְמִינֶֽךָ׃Ps 139:10
Even there your hand will lead me,
and your right hand will hold me.
11וָ֭אֹמַר אַךְ־חֹ֣שֶׁךְ יְשׁוּפֵ֑נִי וְ֝לַ֗יְלָה א֣וֹר בַּעֲדֵֽנִי׃Ps 139:11
If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me;
the light around me will be night;”
12גַּם־חֹשֶׁךְ֮ לֹֽא־יַחְשִׁ֪יךְ מִ֫מֶּ֥ךָ וְ֭לַיְלָה כַּיּ֣וֹם יָאִ֑יר כַּ֝חֲשֵׁיכָ֗ה כָּאוֹרָֽה׃Ps 139:12
even the darkness doesn’t hide from you,
but the night shines as the day.
The darkness is like light to you.
13כִּֽי־אַ֭תָּה קָנִ֣יתָ כִלְיֹתָ֑י תְּ֝סֻכֵּ֗נִי בְּבֶ֣טֶן אִמִּֽי׃Ps 139:13
For you formed my inmost being.
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14אֽוֹדְךָ֗ עַ֤ל כִּ֥י נוֹרָא֗וֹת נִ֫פְלֵ֥יתִי נִפְלָאִ֥ים מַעֲשֶׂ֑יךָ וְ֝נַפְשִׁ֗י יֹדַ֥עַת מְאֹֽד׃Ps 139:14
I will give thanks to you,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful.
My soul knows that very well.
15לֹא־נִכְחַ֥ד עָצְמִ֗י מִ֫מֶּ֥ךָּ אֲשֶׁר־עֻשֵּׂ֥יתִי בַסֵּ֑תֶר רֻ֝קַּ֗מְתִּי בְּֽתַחְתִּיּ֥וֹת אָֽרֶץ׃Ps 139:15
My frame wasn’t hidden from you,
when I was made in secret,
woven together in the depths of the earth.
16גָּלְמִ֤י ׀ רָ֘א֤וּ עֵינֶ֗יךָ וְעַֽל־סִפְרְךָ֮ כֻּלָּ֪ם יִכָּ֫תֵ֥בוּ יָמִ֥ים יֻצָּ֑רוּ ‏{ ולא וְל֖וֹ }‏ אֶחָ֣ד בָּהֶֽם׃

Ketib: ולא ♦ Qere: וְל֖וֹ
Ps 139:16
Your eyes saw my body.
In your book they were all written,
the days that were ordained for me,
when as yet there were none of them.
17וְלִ֗י מַה־יָּקְר֣וּ רֵעֶ֣יךָ אֵ֑ל מֶ֥ה עָ֝צְמוּ רָאשֵׁיהֶֽם׃Ps 139:17
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18אֶ֭סְפְּרֵם מֵח֣וֹל יִרְבּ֑וּן הֱ֝קִיצֹ֗תִי וְעוֹדִ֥י עִמָּֽךְ׃Ps 139:18
If I would count them, they are more in number than the sand.
When I wake up, I am still with you.
19אִם־תִּקְטֹ֖ל אֱל֥וֹהַּ ׀ רָשָׁ֑ע וְאַנְשֵׁ֥י דָ֝מִ֗ים ס֣וּרוּ מֶֽנִּי׃Ps 139:19
If only you, God, would kill the wicked.
Get away from me, you bloodthirsty men!
20אֲשֶׁ֣ר יֹ֭אמְרֻךָ לִמְזִמָּ֑ה נָשֻׂ֖א לַשָּׁ֣וְא עָרֶֽיךָ׃Ps 139:20
For they speak against you wickedly.
Your enemies take your name in vain.
21הֲלֽוֹא־מְשַׂנְאֶ֖יךָ יְהוָ֥ה ׀ אֶשְׂנָ֑א וּ֝בִתְקוֹמְמֶ֗יךָ אֶתְקוֹטָֽט׃Ps 139:21
Yahweh, don’t I hate those who hate you?
Am I not grieved with those who rise up against you?
22תַּכְלִ֣ית שִׂנְאָ֣ה שְׂנֵאתִ֑ים לְ֝אוֹיְבִ֗ים הָ֣יוּ לִֽי׃Ps 139:22
I hate them with perfect hatred.
They have become my enemies.
23חָקְרֵ֣נִי אֵ֭ל וְדַ֣ע לְבָבִ֑י בְּ֝חָנֵ֗נִי וְדַ֣ע שַׂרְעַפָּֽי׃Ps 139:23
Search me, God, and know my heart.
Try me, and know my thoughts.
24וּרְאֵ֗ה אִם־דֶּֽרֶךְ־עֹ֥צֶב בִּ֑י וּ֝נְחֵ֗נִי בְּדֶ֣רֶךְ עוֹלָֽם׃Ps 139:24
See if there is any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the everlasting way.
