Psalm 120 MSG

1 I'm in trouble. I cry to God, desperate for an answer:
2 "Deliver me from the liars, God! They smile so sweetly but lie through their teeth."
3 Do you know what's next, can you see what's coming, all you barefaced liars?
4 Pointed arrows and burning coals will be your reward.
5 I'm doomed to live in Meshech, cursed with a home in Kedar,
6 My whole life lived camping among quarreling neighbors.
7 I'm all for peace, but the minute I tell them so, they go to war!
