Psalms 120* The psalmist prays to God to deliver him from false andmalicious tongues. (1-4) He complains of wicked neighbours.(5-7)1-4 The psalmist was brought into great distress by a deceitfultongue. May every good man be delivered from lying lips. Theyforged false charges against him. In this distress, he soughtGod by fervent prayer. God can bridle their tongues. He obtaineda gracious answer to this prayer. Surely sinners durst not actas they do, if they knew, and would be persuaded to think, whatwill be in the end thereof. The terrors of the Lord are hisarrows; and his wrath is compared to burning coals of juniper,which have a fierce heat, and keep fire very long. This is theportion of the false tongue; for all that love and make a lie,shall have their portion in the lake that burns eternally. 5-7 It is very grievous to a good man, to be cast into, andkept in the company of the wicked, from whom he hopes to be forever separated. See here the character of a good man; he is forliving peaceably with all men. And let us follow David as heprefigured Christ; in our distress let us cry unto the Lord, andhe will hear us. Let us follow after peace and holiness,striving to overcome evil with good
