Psalms 120

In My Distress I Cried to the LORD

A Song of Ascents. In my distress I cried to the LORD, and He answered me. Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips and a deceitful tongue. What will He do to you, and what will be added to you, O deceitful tongue? Sharp arrows from the warrior, with burning coals of juniper! Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar! Too long have I dwelt among those who hate peace. I [am in favor of] peace; but when I speak, they [want] war.
