Yahweh, you have searched me,
and you know me.

You perceive my thoughts from afar.

Where could I go from your Spirit?
Or where could I flee from your presence?

and settle in the uttermost parts of the sea;

I will give thanks to you,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful.
My soul knows that very well.

My frame wasn’t hidden from you,
when I was made in secret,
woven together in the depths of the earth.

and lead me in the everlasting way.
