From The New Normal: The Ubiquitous God

Outside of Psalm 23, Psalm 139 is probably the best known of all the psalms. We hear the pro-life movement quote verses 13-16, and with good reason. We often use the last two verses as a confession. Songwriters have written songs based on this psalm, and pastors have wrapped entire sermon series around it. Simply put – we’ve seen it and read it plenty of times before.
