Psalms - Chapter 120

1

A song of ascents. I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.


2

Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.


3

What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?


4

He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.


5

Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar!


6

Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.


7

I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
