13 For, thou, didst possess thyself of my reins, thou didst weave me together in the womb of my mother.
14 I thank thee, in that fearfully was my being distinguished, Wonderful are thy works, and, mine own soul, is observing intently!
15 My substance was not hid from thee,when I was made in secret, when I was skilfully figured in the lower parts of the earth.
16 Mine unfinished substance, thine eyes beheld, and, in thy book, all the parts thereof were written,the days they should be fashioned! while yet there was not one among them.
17 To me, then, how precious have thy desires become, O GOD! How numerous, the heads of them!
Rejoice in the Lord always: again, I will sayrejoice!
For this boy, I prayed,And Yahweh hath given me my petition which I asked of him.
For, thou, art he that severed me from the womb, he that caused me to trust, upon the breasts of my mother;
Upon thee, was I cast from the time I was born, From the womb of my mother, my GOD, hast thou been.
How to number our days, so grant us to know, That we may win us a heart that hath wisdom.
One thing, have I asked of Yahweh, That, will I seek to secure,That I may dwell in the house of Yahweh, all the days of my life, To view the delightfulness of Yahweh, And to contemplate in his temple.
Upon thee, have I stayed myself from birth, Thou art he that severed me, from the body of my mother, Of thee, shall be my praisecontinually.
For, a son, became I to my father, tender and most precious in the sight of my mother.
So he taught me, and said to meLet thy heart, lay hold of my words, Keep my commandments and live!
And, the child, went on growing, and waxing strong, becoming filled with wisdom; and, the favour of God, was upon it.
This is the day, which Yahweh hath made, We will exult, and be glad therein.
