Psalm 120 The Passion Translation (TPT)
God Helped Me
120 A song of the stairway
1 I was desperate for you to help me in my struggles, and you did!
2 So come and deliver me now
from this treachery and false accusation.
3 O lying deceivers, don’t you know what is your fate?
4 You will be pierced through with condemnation
and consumed with burning coals of fire!
5 Why am I doomed to live as an alien,
scattered among these cruel savages?
Am I destined to dwell in the darkened tents of desert nomads?
6 For too long I’ve had to live among those who hate peace.
7 I speak words of peace while they speak words of war,
but they refuse to listen.
