1 In my distress I cry to the Lord,
that he may answer me:
2 Deliver me, O Lord,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
3 What shall be given to you?
And what more shall be done to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4 A warriors sharp arrows,
with glowing coals of the broom tree!
5 Woe is me, that I am an alien in Meshech,
that I must live among the tents of Kedar.
6 Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace;
but when I speak,
they are for war.
