But (A)who is able to build a house for Him, for the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain Him? So who am I, that I should build a house for Him, except to [a]burn incense before Him?

  1. 2 Chronicles 2:6 Lit offer up in smoke

(A)Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
(B)If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in [a]Sheol, behold, (C)You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will (D)lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11 If I say, “Surely the (E)darkness will [b]overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”
12 Even the (F)darkness is not dark [c]to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
(G)Darkness and light are alike to You.

13 For You (H)formed my [d]inward parts;
You (I)wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for [e]I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
(J)Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My [f](K)frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the (L)depths of the earth;
16 Your (M)eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in (N)Your book were all written
The (O)days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.

Heaven Is God’s Throne

66 Thus says the Lord,

(A)Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool.

And where is a place that [a]I may rest?
