PSALM 120

« Psalm 119 | Psalm 120 | Psalm 121 »

Deliver Me, O Lord
A Song of Ascents.
120:1
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!
