Psalm 120

Deliver Me, O Lord


      1 In my distress I called to the LORD, 

      and he answered me. 

      2 Deliver me, O LORD, 

      from lying lips, 

      from a deceitful tongue. 

      3 What shall be given to you, 

      and what more shall be done to you, 

      you deceitful tongue? 

      4 A warrior’s sharp arrows, 

      with glowing coals of the broom tree! 

      5 Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech, 

      that I dwell among the tents of Kedar! 

      6 Too long have I had my dwelling 

      among those who hate peace. 

      7 I am for peace, 

      but when I speak, they are for war!
