Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Psalm 139 celebrates the omniscience and omnipresence of God. It is ascribed to David. There is, perhaps, no other place in Scripture where the bigness of God is as strikingly set forth as it is in Psalm 139. One scholar wrote, \"Both in loftiness of thought and in expressive beauty of language, Psalm 139 stands preeminent, and it is not surprising that it has been called 'the crown of the Psalms.'\" The superscription addresses the Psalm to the choir director. This is an indication that the Psalm was to be set to music for use in public worship. The entire congregation was to use the Psalm. Its utterances were to be adopted by every member of the congregation. As we study it this morning, may the Lord impress his greatness on our hearts and cause us to live acceptably in his presence.
