If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the Lord, How much more the hearts of mankind!
And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him to whom we must answer.
Though they dig into Sheol, From there My hand will take them; And though they ascend to heaven, From there I will bring them down.
Abaddon and Death say,‘ With our ears we have heard a report of it.’
If I say,“ Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,”
Will You perform wonders for the dead? Or will the departed spirits rise and praise You? Selah
They are as high as the heavens; what can you do? Deeper than Sheol; what can you know?
Sheol below is excited about you, to meet you when you come; It stirs the spirits of the dead for you, all the leaders of the earth; It raises all the kings of the nations from their thrones.
Who has been first to give to Me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the entire heaven is Mine.
