But who is able to build a temple for him, since the heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain him?(A) Who then am I(B) to build a temple for him, except as a place to burn sacrifices before him?

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee(A) from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens,(B) you are there;
    if I make my bed(C) in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,(D)
    your right hand(E) will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark(F) to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.

13 For you created my inmost being;(G)
    you knit me together(H) in my mother’s womb.(I)
14 I praise you(J) because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,(K)
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made(L) in the secret place,
    when I was woven together(M) in the depths of the earth.(N)
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained(O) for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.

Judgment and Hope

66 This is what the Lord says:

“Heaven is my throne,(A)
    and the earth is my footstool.(B)
Where is the house(C) you will build for me?
    Where will my resting place be?

24 Who can hide(A) in secret places
    so that I cannot see them?”
declares the Lord.
