Psalm 120Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
A Cry for Truth and Peace
A song of ascents.
1 In my distress I called to the Lord,
and He answered me.
2 “Lord, deliver me from lying lips
and a deceitful tongue.”
3 What will He give you,
and what will He do to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4 A warrior’s sharp arrows
with burning charcoal!
5 What misery that I have stayed in Meshech,
that I have lived among the tents of Kedar!
6 I have lived too long
with those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace; but when I speak,
they are for war.
