Compared with the classical stories about the creation of humanity in Gen 1-2, Ps 139:13-16 is a remarkable text exposing some interesting details about variant Israelite concepts regarding human origins. One of those is the idea that divine creation transcends the repetitive processes of birth. It is argued that the Hebrew term, קנה has strong mythological connotations here as well as in other places in the Old Testament. סכך should most likely be correlated with נסך, which is clarified in closely related contexts such as Prov 8:23 and Ps 2:6.
