Deliver Me, O Lord
A Song of a Ascents.1 In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
2Deliver me, O Lord,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
3 What shall be given to you,
b and what more shall be done to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4 c A warrior’s d sharp arrows,
with glowing e coals of the broom tree!
5 Woe to me, that I sojourn in f Meshech,
that I dwell among g the tents of h Kedar!
6Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
7 i I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war!
