O Yahweh, Deliver My Soul

A Song of [a]Ascents.

120 (A)In my distress I called to Yahweh,
And He answered me.
O Yahweh, deliver my soul from a (B)lying lip,
From a (C)deceitful tongue.
What shall He give to you, and what shall He add to you,
O (D)deceitful tongue?
(E)Sharp arrows of the warrior,
With the burning (F)coals of the broom tree.

Woe is me, for I sojourn in (G)Meshech,
For I dwell among the (H)tents of (I)Kedar!
Too long has my soul had its dwelling
With those who (J)hate peace.
I (K)am for peace, but when I speak,
They are (L)for war.


  1. Psalm 120 Title Ex 34:24; 1 Kin 12:27
