Psalm 120New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Prayer of a Returned Exile
1 A song of ascents.
The Lord answered me
when I called in my distress:
2 Lord, deliver my soul from lying lips,
from a treacherous tongue.
3 What will he inflict on you,
O treacherous tongue,
and what more besides?
4 A warrior’s arrows
sharpened with coals of brush wood!
5 Alas, I am a foreigner in Meshech,
I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 Too long do I live
among those who hate peace.
7 When I speak of peace,
they are for war.
