Psalm 120

Prayer for Deliverance from Slanderers

A Song of Ascents.
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 warrior’s 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.
