Psalm 120 New American Standard Bible

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 1  In my trouble I cried to the Lord , And He answered me. 2  Deliver my soul , 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  Sharp arrows of the warrior , With the burning coals of the broom tree .

5  Woe is me, for I sojourn in Meshech , For I dwell among the tents of Kedar ! 6  Too long has my soul had its dwelling With those who hate peace . 7  I am for peace , but when I speak , They are for war .
