Psalm 120

A Cry for Truth and Peace

A song of ascents.

In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
Lord, rescue me from lying lips
and a deceitful tongue.”

What will he give you,
and what will he do to you,
you deceitful tongue?
A warrior’s sharp arrows
with burning charcoal![a]

What misery that I have stayed in Meshech,[b]
that I have lived among the tents of Kedar![c]
I have dwelt too long
with those who hate peace.
I am for peace; but when I speak,
they are for war.
