Psalm 120New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.
1 I call out to the Lord when I’m in trouble, and he answers me. 2 Lord, save me from people whose lips tell lies. Save me from people whose tongues don’t tell the truth.
3 What will the Lord do to you, you lying tongue? And what more will he do? 4 He will punish you with the sharp arrows of a soldier. He will punish you with burning coals from a desert bush.
5 How terrible it is for me to live in the tents of the people of Meshek! How terrible to live in the tents of the people of Kedar! 6 I have lived too long among those who hate peace. 7 I want peace. But when I speak, they want war.
