Psalm 120 New Revised Standard Version

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 1  In my distress I cry to the Lord, that he may answer 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 is me, that I am an alien in Meshech, that I must live 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.
