If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there.
Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the LORD— how much more, human hearts.
No creature is hidden from him, but all things are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give an account.
If they dig down to Sheol, from there my hand will take them; if they climb up to heaven, from there I will bring them down.
Abaddon and Death say,“ We have heard news of it with our ears.”
If I say,“ Surely the darkness will hide me, and the light around me will be night”—
Do you work wonders for the dead? Do departed spirits rise up to praise you? Selah
They are higher than the heavens— what can you do? They are deeper than Sheol— what can you know?
Sheol below is eager to greet your coming, stirring up the spirits of the departed for you— all the rulers of the earth— making all the kings of the nations rise from their thrones.
Who confronted me, that I should repay him? Everything under heaven belongs to me.
