When I was in trouble, I called to the Lord, and he answered me.
Lord, save me from liars and from those who plan evil.
You who plan evil, what will God do to you? How will he punish you?
He will punish you with the sharp arrows of a warrior and with burning coals of wood.
How terrible it is for me to live in the land of Meshech, to live among the people of Kedar.
I have lived too long with people who hate peace.
When I talk peace, they want war. A song for going up to worship.
