Psalm 120 Bible in Basic English

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 1  In my trouble my cry went up to the Lord, and he gave me an answer. 2  O Lord, be the saviour of my soul from false lips, and from the tongue of deceit. 3  What punishment will he give you? what more will he do to you, you false tongue? 4  Sharp arrows of the strong, and burning fire.

5  Sorrow is mine because I am strange in Meshech, and living in the tents of Kedar. 6  My soul has long been living with the haters of peace. 7  I am for peace: but when I say so, they are for war.
