Psalm 120
New American Standard Bible►► 

Prayer for Rescue from the Treacherous.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1I cried to the LORD in my trouble,

And He answered me.

2Rescue my soul, LORD, from lying lips,

From a deceitful tongue.

3What will He give to you, and what more will He do to you,

You deceitful tongue?

4Sharp arrows of the warrior,

With the burning coals of the broom tree!

5Woe to me, for I reside in Meshech,

For I have settled among the tents of Kedar!

6Too long has my soul had its dwelling

With those who hate peace.

7I am for peace, but when I speak,

They are for war.

[a] PSALM 120Title Ex 34:24; 1 Kin 12:27
