Psalm 120Common English Bible (CEB)
A pilgrimage song.
120 I cried out to the Lord when I was in trouble
(and he answered me):
2 “Lord, deliver me from lying lips
and a dishonest tongue!”
3 What more will be given to you,
what more will be done to you,
you dishonest tongue?
4 Just this: a warrior’s sharpened arrows,
coupled with burning coals from a wood fire!
5 Oh, I’m doomed
because I have been an immigrant in Meshech,
because I’ve made my home among Kedar’s tents.
6 I’ve lived far too long
with people who hate peace.
7 I’m for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war.
