    23. 24. Psalm 139:13-18 <ul><li>Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. </li></ul><ul><li>How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! </li></ul><ul><li>If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You. </li></ul>
