    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 139:4

    There is not a word in my tongue - Although (כי ki) there be not a word in my tongue, behold O Jehovah, thou knowest the whole of it, that is, thou knowest all my words before they are uttered as thou knowest all my thoughts while as yet they are unformed.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 139:4

    For there is not a word in my tongue - All that I say; all that I have power to say; all that I am disposed at any time to say.

    But lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether - All that pertains to it. What is "said," and what is "meant." Merely to "hear" what is spoken does not imply necessarily a full knowledge of what is said - for it may be false, insincere, hypocritical. God knows exactly what is said and what is "meant."
