Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1To Lord Jehovah in my suffering I cried, and he answered me!
2And, Lord Jehovah, save my soul from the lips of the evil and from the deceitful tongue!
3What will we give to you and what will we add to you, deceitful tongue?
4The arrows of a mighty man are sharp, like burning coals of oak.
5Woe to me, for my pilgrimage is long and I have dwelt in a tent of Qedar!
6My soul has long dwelt with those who hate peace.
7And I have spoken peace and they have been fighting with me.
