A Psalm of David. O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
(Clarke’s — thou hast investigated me; thou hast thoroughly acquainted thyself with my whole soul and conduct.)
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
(Clarke’s — Investigate my conduct, examine my heart, put me to the test, and entwine my thoughts.)
And see if there be any wicked way in me
(Clarke’s — a way of idolatry or of error. Any thing false in religious principle; any thing contrary to piety to thyself, and love and benevolence to man.)
………… and lead me in the way everlasting.
(Clarke’s — in the old way – the way in which our fathers walked, who worshiped thee, the infinitely pure Spirit, in spirit and in truth. Lead me, guide me, as thou didst them.)
Trust God for your day, ….Today
