Psalms 139:2-4


139:2 You know when I sit down and when I get up;

even from far away you understand my motives.

139:3 You carefully observe me when I travel or when I lie down to rest; 1 

you are aware of everything I do. 2 

139:4 Certainly 3  my tongue does not frame a word

without you, O Lord, being thoroughly aware of it. 4 

1 tn Heb “my traveling and my lying down you measure.” The verb זָרָה (zarah, “to measure”) is probably here a denominative from זָרָת (zarat, “a span; a measure”), though some derive it from זָרָה (zarat, “to winnow; to sift”; see BDB 279-80 s.v. זָרָה).

2 tn Heb “all my ways.”

3 tn Or “for.”

4 tn Heb “look, O Lord, you know all of it.”
