Psalm 120

A song of ascents.

1In my distress I cried out

to the Lord and he answered me.

2I said, “O Lord, rescue me

from those who lie with their lips

and those who deceive with their tongue.

3How will he severely punish you,

you deceptive talker?

4Here’s how! With the sharp arrows of warriors,

with arrowheads forged over the hot coals.

5How miserable I am!

For I have lived temporarily in Meshech;

I have resided among the tents of Kedar.

6For too long I have had to reside

with those who hate peace.

7I am committed to peace,

but when I speak, they want to make war.

Psalm 119
