I Am for Shalom

Psalm 120

A Song of Ascents.
In my trouble I cried out to Adonai,
    and He answered me.
Adonai, deliver my soul from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
What can be given to you,
and what more can be done to you, O deceitful tongue?—
sharp arrows of the mighty,
    with burning coals of a broom tree!
Woe to me, for I sojourn in Meshech,
for I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
My soul has too long dwelt
with those who hate shalom.
I am for shalom and thus I speak,
but they are for war!
