Further Reflections on Scripture References
A versification of much of Psalm 139, "LORD, You Have Searched Me" comes from the 1912 Psalter; Marie J. Post (PHH 5) modified it in 1986 for the Psalter Hymnal. Stanzas 1 and 5, following verses 1 and 23-24 of the biblical text, frame the entire psalm. See PHH 139 for further commentary on Psalm 139.

Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 10 testifies that we are “made in God’s image to live in loving communion with our Maker...”
Later, Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 44 confesses: “…life is a gift from God…” that we receive “thankfully with reverence for the Creator.”
