A Prayer of Someone Far from Home

A psalm for going up to worship.

120 When I was in trouble, I called to the Lord,
    and he answered me.
Lord, save me from liars
    and from those who plan evil.

You who plan evil, what will God do to you?
    How will he punish you?
He will punish you with the sharp arrows of a warrior
    and with burning coals of wood.

How terrible it is for me to live in the land of Meshech,
    to live among the people of Kedar.
I have lived too long
    with people who hate peace.
When I talk peace,
    they want war.
