                    Psalms 139-141
Search Me, O God, and Know My Heart
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

139   O LORD, you have searched me and known me!  You know when I sit down and when I rise up;    you discern my thoughts from afar.  You search out my path and my lying down    and are acquainted with all my ways.  Even before a word is on my tongue,    behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.  You hem me in, behind and before,    and lay your hand upon me.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;    it is high; I cannot attain it.

  Where shall I go from your Spirit?    Or where shall I flee from your presence?  If I ascend to heaven, you are there!    If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!  If I take the wings of the morning    and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,  even there your hand shall lead me,    and your right hand shall hold me.  If I say, ?Surely the darkness shall cover me,    and the light about me be night,?  even the darkness is not dark to you;    the night is bright as the day,    for darkness is as light with you.

  For you formed my inward parts;    you knitted me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.1  Wonderful are your works;    my soul knows it very well.  My frame was not hidden from you,  when I was being made in secret,    intricately woven in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed substance;  in your book were written, every one of them,    the days that were formed for me,    when as yet there was none of them.

  How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!    How vast is the sum of them!  If I would count them, they are more than the sand.    I awake, and I am still with you.

  Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!    O men of blood, depart from me!  They speak against you with malicious intent;    your enemies take your name in vain.2  Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD?    And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?  I hate them with complete hatred;    I count them my enemies.

  Search me, O God, and know my heart!    Try me and know my thoughts!3  And see if there be any grievous way in me,    and lead me in the way everlasting!4
Deliver Me, O Lord, from Evil Men
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

140   Deliver me, O LORD, from evil men;    preserve me from violent men,  who plan evil things in their heart    and stir up wars continually.  They make their tongue sharp as a serpent's,    and under their lips is the venom of asps. Selah

  Guard me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;    preserve me from violent men,    who have planned to trip up my feet.  The arrogant have hidden a trap for me,    and with cords they have spread a net;5    beside the way they have set snares for me. Selah

  I say to the LORD, You are my God;    give ear to the voice of my pleas for mercy, O LORD!  O LORD, my Lord, the strength of my salvation,    you have covered my head in the day of battle.  Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked;    do not further their6 evil plot, or they will be exalted! Selah

  As for the head of those who surround me,    let the mischief of their lips overwhelm them!  Let burning coals fall upon them!    Let them be cast into fire,    into miry pits, no more to rise!  Let not the slanderer be established in the land;    let evil hunt down the violent man speedily!

  I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted,    and will execute justice for the needy.  Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name;    the upright shall dwell in your presence.
Give Ear to My Voice
A Psalm of David.

141   O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me!    Give ear to my voice when I call to you!  Let my prayer be counted as incense before you,    and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!

  Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth;    keep watch over the door of my lips!  Do not let my heart incline to any evil,    to busy myself with wicked deeds  in company with men who work iniquity,    and let me not eat of their delicacies!

  Let a righteous man strike me?it is a kindness;    let him rebuke me?it is oil for my head;    let my head not refuse it.  Yet my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.  When their judges are thrown over the cliff,7    then they shall hear my words, for they are pleasant.  As when one plows and breaks up the earth,    so shall our bones be scattered at the mouth of Sheol.8

  But my eyes are toward you, O GOD, my Lord;    in you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!9  Keep me from the trap that they have laid for me    and from the snares of evildoers!  Let the wicked fall into their own nets,    while I pass by safely.

Warning Against Idolatry
10 For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers,1 that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. Nevertheless, with most of them God was not pleased, for they were overthrown2 in the wilderness.
Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did. Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, ?The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.? We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. We must not put Christ3 to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer. Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

Well that Psalm pretty much sums up your life walking with God, realistic walking, talking good and bad walking in relationship with God.  So packed this psalm its unreal lol

Has me think how lyrics of songs sometimes are like psalms, or talking from your spirit, expression... like this one:

Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes
 But it's the only thing that I know
 When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes
 It is the only thing that makes us feel alive

We keep this love in a photograph
 We made these memories for ourselves
 Where our eyes are never closing
 Hearts are never broken
 And time's forever frozen still

Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul
 And it's the only thing that I know, know
 I swear it will get easier,
 Remember that with every piece of you
 and it's the only thing we take with us when we die


To.... heart cries of : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0VEESYIgoY ....

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me
your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
And nothing will drag you down


To the fighting back and knowing ya not alone no more, walking on the boulevard of broken dreams lol

But then im sure these would be rejected by Scripture only people, which is okay. :D
