Psalms 120

Psalm 120

Deliver Me, O LORD

A Song of Ascents.

[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! (ESV)
