Psalm 120
GOD'S WORD® Translation

1[A song for going up to worship.] When I was in trouble, I cried out to the LORD, and he answered me.

2O LORD, rescue me from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue.

3You deceitful tongue, what can the LORD give you? What more can he do for you?

4He will give you a warrior's sharpened arrows and red-hot coals.

5How horrible it is to live as a foreigner in Meshech or to stay in the tents of Kedar.

6I have lived too long with those who hate peace.

7I am for peace, but when I talk about it, they only talk about war.
