Psalms 120

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!
