Psalms 120

1

A SONG OF ASCENTS.In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me.

2

Deliver me, O LORD, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.

3

What shall be given to you, and what more shall be done to you, you deceitful tongue?

4

A warrior's sharp arrows, with glowing coals of the broom tree!

5

Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!

6

Too long have I had my dwelling among those who hate peace.

7

I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war!
