Psalm 120215

A song of ascents.216

120:1 In my distress I cried out

to the Lord and he answered me.

120:2 I said,1 “O Lord, rescue me2

from those who lie with their lips3

and those who deceive with their tongue.4

120:3 How will he severely punish you,

you deceptive talker?5

120:4 Here’s how!6 With the sharp arrows of warriors,

with arrowheads forged over the hot coals.7

120:5 How miserable I am!8

For I have lived temporarily9 in Meshech;

I have resided among the tents of Kedar.10

120:6 For too long I have had to reside

with those who hate11 peace.

120:7 I am committed to peace,12

but when I speak, they want to make war.13
