A Song of Degrees

1 To Jehovah in my distress I cried, And he answered me.

2 O Jehovah! deliver my soul from the lip of falsehood, From the tongue of deceit.

3 What give thee, and what avail thee Shall the tongue of deceit?

4 The arrows of a strong man sharpened, With coals of junipers.

5 Alas for me! that I have been a sojourner in Meseeh, And have dwelt among the tents of Kedar.

6 Long dwelt hath my soul with him who hateth peace.

7 I [am for] peace; But when I speak, they [are] for war.
