Psalm 120 New International Version

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 1  I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me. 2  Save me, Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. 3  What will he do to you, and what more besides, you deceitful tongue? 4  He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom bush.

5  Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek, that I live among the tents of Kedar! 6  Too long have I lived among those who hate peace. 7  I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
