Where can we go?

You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You perceive my thoughts from afar.

You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me:
It is too high, I cannot attain it.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I look up to the heavens, You are there;
If I make my bed in the depths, You are there.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,"
Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day
Darkness and light are alike to You.
