Psalm 120 English Standard Version

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 1  In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered 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 to me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell 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!
