For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

139:13 covered me. “Covered equals “shielded.” This is a beautiful metaphor for the marvelous provisions for the protection of the embryonic child while growing in the womb.

139:14 wonderfully. The word “wonderfully” stresses the aspect “differently.” That is, each baby is designed to be like all human beings in over-all aspect, but uniquely different from all others in detail.
