Psalms: 120

[A Song of Ascents.]

In Praise of Jerusalem.

In my distress I cry to the LORD,
that he may answer me: "Deliver me, O LORD,
from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue."

What shall be given to you?
And what more shall be done to you, you deceitful tongue?
A warrior's sharp arrows,
with glowing coals of the broom tree!

Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech,
that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
I am for peace;
but when I speak,
they are for war!
