Psalm 120

A song for going up to worship.

When I was in trouble, I cried out to Yahweh,
    and he answered me.
O Yahweh, rescue me from lying lips
    and from a deceitful tongue.

You deceitful tongue, what can Yahweh give you?
    What more can he do for you?
        He will give you a warrior’s sharpened arrows and red-hot coals.

How horrible it is to live as a foreigner in Meshech
    or to stay in the tents of Kedar.
        I have lived too long with those who hate peace.
        I am for peace, but when I talk about it,
            they only talk about war.
