O where can I go from your spirit, or where can I flee from your face? If I climb the heavens, you are there. If I lie in the grave, you are there. (R.)

If I say: “Let the darkness hide me and the light around me be night,” even darkness is not dark for you and the night is as clear as the day. (R.)
