Psalm 139 – Great is the Mystery of Faith

Why not pause to reflect on God’s creation’s immense vastness and mystery?

Psalm 139, written by King David, tells us God knew us before we were born when He knitted us together in our mother’s womb, he watched over us as we developed there, and since the beginning of time, He knew how many days each of us would live on earth. 

See the beautiful poetic language David uses to describe these things in the verses selected from Psalm 139 below.

13 For it was you who formed my inward parts;

    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

    Wonderful are your works;

that I know very well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you,

when I was being made in secret,

    intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

16 Your eyes beheld my unformed substance.

In your book were written

    all the days that were formed for me,

    when none of them as yet existed.

17 How weighty to me are your thoughts, O God!

    How vast is the sum of them!

18 I try to count them—they are more than the sand;

    I come to the end “[a]—I am still with you.
