Psalms



The fifth book of Psalms, song 120, New English Translation

Psalm 120


   A song of ascents.
   1 In my distress I cried out to the LORD and he answered me.
   2 I said, "O LORD, rescue me from those who lie with their lips and those who deceive with their tongue.
   3 How will he severely punish you, you deceptive talker?
   4 Here's how! With the sharp arrows of warriors, with arrowheads forged over the hot coals.
   5 How miserable I am! For I have lived temporarily in Meshech; I have resided among the tents of Kedar.
   6 For too long I have had to reside with those who hate peace.
   7 I am committed to peace, but when I speak, they want to make war.
