Salmos 139

Al director musical. Salmo de David.

1Señor, tú me examinas,
    tú me conoces.
Sabes cuándo me siento y cuándo me levanto;
    aun en la distancia me lees el pensamiento.
Mis trajines y descansos los conoces;
    todos mis caminos te son familiares.
No me llega aún la palabra a la lengua
    cuando tú, Señor, ya la conoces.
Tu protección me envuelve por completo;
    me cubres con la palma de tu mano.
Conocimiento tan maravilloso rebasa mi comprensión;
    tan sublime es que no puedo entenderlo.

¿A dónde podría alejarme de tu Espíritu?
    ¿A dónde podría huir de tu presencia?
Si subiera al cielo,
    allí estás tú;
si tendiera mi lecho en el fondo del abismo,
    también estás allí.
Si me elevara sobre las alas del alba,
    o me estableciera en los extremos del mar,
10 aun allí tu mano me guiaría,
    ¡me sostendría tu mano derecha!

11 Y, si dijera: «Que me oculten las tinieblas;
    que la luz se haga noche en torno a mí»,
12 ni las tinieblas serían oscuras para ti,
    y aun la noche sería clara como el día.
    ¡Lo mismo son para ti las tinieblas que la luz!

13 Tú creaste mis entrañas;
    me formaste en el vientre de mi madre.
14 ¡Te alabo porque soy una creación admirable!
    ¡Tus obras son maravillosas,
    y esto lo sé muy bien!
15 Mis huesos no te fueron desconocidos
    cuando en lo más recóndito era yo formado,
cuando en lo más profundo de la tierra
    era yo entretejido.
16 Tus ojos vieron mi cuerpo en gestación:
    todo estaba ya escrito en tu libro;
todos mis días se estaban diseñando,
    aunque no existía uno solo de ellos.

17 ¡Cuán preciosos, oh Dios, me son tus pensamientos!
    ¡Cuán inmensa es la suma de ellos!
18 Si me propusiera contarlos,
    sumarían más que los granos de arena.
Y, si terminara de hacerlo,[a]
    aún estaría a tu lado.

19 Oh Dios, ¡si les quitaras la vida a los impíos!
    ¡Si de mí se apartara la gente sanguinaria,
20 esos que con malicia te difaman
    y que en vano se rebelan contra ti![b]
21 ¿Acaso no aborrezco, Señor, a los que te odian,
    y abomino a los que te rechazan?
22 El odio que les tengo es un odio implacable;
    ¡los cuento entre mis enemigos!

23 Examíname, oh Dios, y sondea mi corazón;
    ponme a prueba y sondea mis pensamientos.
24 Fíjate en si voy por mal camino,
    y guíame por el camino eterno.

Psalm 139

Psalm 139

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Lord, you have seen what is in my heart.
    You know all about me.
You know when I sit down and when I get up.
    You know what I’m thinking even though you are far away.
You know when I go out to work and when I come back home.
    You know exactly how I live.
Lord, even before I speak a word,
    you know all about it.

You are all around me, behind me and in front of me.
    You hold me safe in your hand.
I’m amazed at how well you know me.
    It’s more than I can understand.

How can I get away from your Spirit?
    Where can I go to escape from you?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there.
    If I lie down in the deepest parts of the earth, you are also there.
Suppose I were to rise with the sun in the east.
    Suppose I travel to the west where it sinks into the ocean.
10 Your hand would always be there to guide me.
    Your right hand would still be holding me close.

11 Suppose I were to say, “I’m sure the darkness will hide me.
    The light around me will become as dark as night.”
12 Even that darkness would not be dark to you.
    The night would shine like the day,
    because darkness is like light to you.

13 You created the deepest parts of my being.
    You put me together inside my mother’s body.
14 How you made me is amazing and wonderful.
    I praise you for that.
What you have done is wonderful.
    I know that very well.
15 None of my bones was hidden from you
    when you made me inside my mother’s body.
    That place was as dark as the deepest parts of the earth.
When you were putting me together there,
16     your eyes saw my body even before it was formed.
You planned how many days I would live.
    You wrote down the number of them in your book
    before I had lived through even one of them.

17 God, your thoughts about me are priceless.
    No one can possibly add them all up.
18 If I could count them,
    they would be more than the grains of sand.
If I were to fall asleep counting and then wake up,
    you would still be there with me.

19 God, I wish you would kill the people who are evil!
    I wish those murderers would get away from me!
20 They are your enemies. They misuse your name.
    They misuse it for their own evil purposes.
21 Lord, I really hate those who hate you!
    I really hate those who rise up against you!
22 I have nothing but hatred for them.
    I consider them to be my enemies.

23 God, see what is in my heart.
    Know what is there.
Test me.
    Know what I’m thinking.
24 See if there’s anything in my life you don’t like.
    Help me live in the way that is always right.
