I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well…
your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand –
when I awake, I am still with you.
– King David, Psalm 139: 13-18
