Psalms 120

Deliver Me, O  Lord

A Song of a Ascents.

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