Psalm 120 New Living Translation

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 I took my troubles to the Lord ; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer. 2  Rescue me, O Lord, from liars and from all deceitful people. 3  O┬ádeceptive tongue, what will God do to you? How will he increase your punishment? 4  You will be pierced with sharp arrows and burned with glowing coals.

5  How I suffer in far-off Meshech. It pains me to live in distant Kedar. 6  I am tired of living among people who hate peace. 7  I search for peace; but when I speak of peace, they want war!
