Psalm 120
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Song of Ascentsa

A Prayer for Deliverance

1I cried to the LORD in my distress,

and he responded to me.

2“LORD, deliver meb from lips that lie

and tongues that deceive.”

3What will be given to you,

and what will be done to you,

you treacherous tongue?

4Like ac sharp arrow from a warrior,

along with fiery coals from juniper trees!

5How terrible for me,

that I am an alien in Meshech,

that I reside among the tents of Kedar!

6I have resided too long

with those who hate peace.

7I am in favor of peace;

but when I speak,

they are in favor of war.

a 120:T Or Degrees; and so through Psalm 134
b 120:2 Lit. my soul
c 120:4 The Heb. lacks Like a
