Psalms 139:6

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
6. "Thy skill hath displayed itself wonderfully in me: it hath waxed mighty: I shall not be able to attain unto it" (ver. 6). Listen now and hear somewhat, which is obscure indeed, yet bringeth no small pleasure in the understanding thereon. Moses, the holy servant of God, with whom God spake by a cloud, for, speaking after human fashion, He must needs speak to His servant through some work of His hands which He assumed, ...longed and desired to see the true appearance of God, and said to God, who was conversing with him, "If now I have found grace in Thy sight, show me Thyself."

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
To me. Literally, "from me "ex me. Hebrew, "above me "(Haydock) or "more than I "(Houbigant) which seems little. "The knowledge which thou hast of me is admirable. "(Berthier) To consider attentively the workmanship of man, we shall be filled with astonishment, (Menochius) as the Jews explain this passage, (Calmet) and as the Vulgate seems to intimate. (Haydock) The formation of the body, and its union with the soul, are truly astonishing. This gives the highest idea of the divine wisdom. (Haydock) By experience we are convinced that his knowledge surpasses our comprehension. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
