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.

Psalm 121

Assurance of God’s Protection

A Song of Ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
   from where will my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
   who made heaven and earth.


3 He will not let your foot be moved;
   he who keeps you will not slumber.
4 He who keeps Israel
   will neither slumber nor sleep.


5 The Lord is your keeper;
   the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
   nor the moon by night.


7 The Lord will keep you from all evil;
   he will keep your life.
8 The Lord will keep
   your going out and your coming in
   from this time on and for evermore.

Psalm 122

Song of Praise and Prayer for Jerusalem

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1 I was glad when they said to me,
   ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’
2 Our feet are standing
   within your gates, O Jerusalem.


3 Jerusalem—built as a city
   that is bound firmly together.
4 To it the tribes go up,
   the tribes of the Lord,
as was decreed for Israel,
   to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5 For there the thrones for judgement were set up,
   the thrones of the house of David.


6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
   ‘May they prosper who love you.
7 Peace be within your walls,
   and security within your towers.’
8 For the sake of my relatives and friends
   I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
   I will seek your good.
