Psalm 120

Prayer for Deliverance from Slanderers

A Song of Ascents.

1

In my distress I cry to the Lord,

that he may answer me:

2

“Deliver me, O Lord,

from lying lips,

from a deceitful tongue.”

 

3

What shall be given to you?

And what more shall be done to you,

you deceitful tongue?

4

A warrior’s sharp arrows,

with glowing coals of the broom tree!

 

5

Woe is me, that I am an alien in Meshech,

that I must live among the tents of Kedar.

6

Too long have I had my dwelling

among those who hate peace.

7

I am for peace;

but when I speak,

they are for war.
