Psalms Chapter 120 – David prayeth for deliverance from the wicked. (A Song of degrees.)

1 In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and he heard me.


2 Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.


3 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?


4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.


5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!


6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.


7 I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
