Heb 4:13  Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

All men, openly profane men, who are enemies to Christ, and his people, are under his eye and notice; he knows their persons, he sees their actions, even those that are most secretly devised and performed against him, and his saints; and he takes such notice of them, as to bring them into judgment for them.

He knows formal professors of religion, and upon what foot they have taken up their profession, and how they keep their lusts with their profession. He can distinguish between profession and grace; and he knows and observes the springs and progress of their apostasy:

And as for true believers, he knows their persons, and knows them to be his; he sees their sins and their weaknesses; he takes notice of their graces, and observes their wants; and there is nothing in them, or belongs to them, but what is before him, even the secret desires of their souls. 

~John Gill~  

Psa 33:13  The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. 

Where his throne and temple are, upon the earth and men, and things in it, he beholdeth all the sons of men; the evil and the good; which is contrary to the sense of many wicked men, who imagine he takes no notice of what is done here below; but his eye is upon all, upon all the workers of iniquity, how secret soever they may be.

And not only his eye of Providence is upon good men, but his eye of love, grace, and mercy; and he has a special and distinct knowledge of them: 

~John Gill~ 

Pro 5:21  For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings. 

For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord---Both good and bad; the ways of a chaste and virtuous man, who cleaves to his own wife and shuns the harlot, which are approved of by the Lord.

And the ways of a lewd man, all the impure thoughts, desires, and contrivances of his mind, and all the steps he takes to commit lewdness, and all the filthy actions he is guilty of, these are all open and naked to the omniscient God:

The adulterer seeks the twilight, and flatters himself with secrecy, not considering that the eye of God is upon him; there are many, that, were their filthy actions known to men, they would be ashamed of them; and this consideration greatly deters from them, and puts them upon secret ways of committing them; Much more should the consideration of the divine omniscience weigh with them to avoid them.

And he pondereth all his goings; he not only sees them, but takes notice of them, and observes them, and ponders them in his mind, and lays them up there, in order to bring to an account for them hereafter; yea, he weighs them in the balance of justice, and will proportion the punishment unto them, according to the rules of it; when it must go ill with those that follow such lewd practices.

~John Gill~ 

Psa 139:4  For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 

For there is not a word in my tongue---Expressed by it or upon it, just ready to be spoken; before it is formed there; while it is in the mind, and not expressed, and even before that.

But, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether; the whole of it, from whence it springs; the reason of it, what is designed, or the ends to be answered by it. 

The Lord knows the good words of his people, which they speak to him in prayer, even before and while they are speaking them; and what they say to one another in private conversation.

There is a great God in heaven who sees all things, and governs all things.

~John Gill~
