A Prayer for the Lord’s Help

120 When I am in trouble, I pray,
    “Come and save me, Lord,
    from deceitful liars!”

What punishment is fitting
    for you deceitful liars?
    Your reward should be
    sharp and flaming arrows!

But I must live as a foreigner
among the people of Meshech
    and in the tents of Kedar.[a]
I have spent too much time
    living among people
    who hate peace.
I am in favor of peace,
but when I speak of it,
    all they want is war.
