Psalm 139 Project Vs. 1
NAS – O Lord, Thou hast searched me and known me.
Complete Jewish Bible – Adonai, You have probed me, and You know me.
Easy-to-Read Version – Lord, You have tested me, so You know all about me.
New International Reader’s Version – Lord, You have seen what is in my heart. You know all about me.
The very thought
Because what’s lying there
Because deep inside, my core is not good
Shutting down perfection
Because if You are all that is good
I am unlovable
Consuming, white-hot anger
Because what I crave, I cannot control
I cannot change
Deep level, under-the-chaos serenity
Because somewhere, at sometime, someone
Cared enough to probe
Fragile and feeble hope
Because even if I wanted to try
There is no pretending
Slight, feeble, weak, faith
Because suddenly I see that I am not the only one
Who knows me
