Psalm 139:1-10 and Wisdom 1:1-7
1 Unto the end. A Psalm of David. O Lord, you have examined me, and you have known me.
2 You have known my sitting down and my rising up again.
3 You have understood my thoughts from afar. My path and my fate, you have investigated.
4 And you have foreseen all my ways. For there is no word in my tongue.
5 Behold, O Lord, you have known all things: the newest and the very old. You have formed me, and you have placed your hand over me.
6 Your knowledge has become a wonder to me. It has been reinforced, and I am not able to prevail against it.
7 Where will I go from your Spirit? And where will I flee from your face?
8 If I ascend into heaven, you are there. If I descend into Hell, you are near.
9 If I assume my feathers in early morning, and dwell in the utmost parts of the sea,
10 even there, your hand will lead me forth, and your right hand will hold me.
1 Love justice, you who judge the land. Think of the Lord in goodness and seek him in simplicity of heart.
2 For he is found by those who do not test him, yet he reveals himself to those who have faith in him.
3 For perverse thoughts separate from God. But his virtue, when it is tested, corrects the foolish.
4 For wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subdued by sin.
5 For the holy spirit of instruction will flee from falsehood, and he will withdraw himself from thoughts that are without understanding, and he will not be reached when iniquity overcomes.
6 For the spirit of wisdom is benevolent, and will not release the evil speaker from his talk, because God is a witness of his temperament, and a true examiner of his heart, and an auditor of his words.
7 For the spirit of the Lord has filled the world, and he who contains all things, retains knowledge of every voice.
