Bible: Psalm 120

Psalm 120 1 

120:1 A song of ascents. 2 

In my distress I cried out

to the Lord and he answered me.

120:2 I said, 3  “O Lord, rescue me 4 

from those who lie with their lips 5 

and those who deceive with their tongue. 6 

120:3 How will he severely punish you,

you deceptive talker? 7 

120:4 Here’s how! 8  With the sharp arrows of warriors,

with arrowheads forged over the hot coals. 9 

120:5 How miserable I am! 10 

For I have lived temporarily 11  in Meshech;

I have resided among the tents of Kedar. 12 

120:6 For too long I have had to reside

with those who hate 13  peace.

120:7 I am committed to peace, 14 

but when I speak, they want to make war. 15
