Psalm 120 King James Version

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 1  In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and he heard me. 2  Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue. 3  What shall be given [1] unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue? 4  Sharp [2] arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.

5  Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! 6  My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. 7  I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.


[1] 120:3 What shall be given...: or, What shall the deceitful tongue give unto thee? or, what shall is profit thee?

[2] 120:4 Sharp...: or, It is as the sharp arrows of the mighty man, with coals of juniper
