Tehillim 120 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

120 (Shir HaMa’a- lot [Song of Ascents]) In my tzoros I cried unto Hashem, and He heard me.

Save my nefesh, Hashem, from sefat sheker (lying lips), and from lashon remiyyah (a tongue of deceit).

What shall be given unto thee? Or what shall be done unto thee, thou lashon remiyyah?

Sharp khitzim (arrows) of the gibbor, with burning (charcoal) coals of the broom plant.

Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell in the ohalim of Kedar!

My nefesh hath long dwelt with him that hateth shalom.

I am for shalom; but when I speak, they are for milchamah (war).

Psalm 120 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 120

A song of ascents.

I call on the Lord in my distress,
    and he answers me.
Save me, Lord,
    from lying lips
    and from deceitful tongues.

What will he do to you,
    and what more besides,
    you deceitful tongue?
He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows,
    with burning coals of the broom bush.

Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek,
    that I live among the tents of Kedar!
Too long have I lived
    among those who hate peace.
I am for peace;
    but when I speak, they are for war.
