In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me.
Deliver me, O LORD, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
What shall be given to you, 1and what more shall be done to you, you deceitful tongue?
2A warrior's 3sharp arrows, with glowing 4coals of the broom tree!
Woe to me, that I sojourn in 5Meshech, that I dwell among 6the tents of 7Kedar!
Too long have I had my dwelling among those who hate peace.
8I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war!
