I took my troubles to the LORD ; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.
Rescue me, O LORD, from liars and from all deceitful people.
O deceptive tongue, what will God do to you? How will he increase your punishment?
You will be pierced with sharp arrows and burned with glowing coals.
How I suffer in far-off Meshech. It pains me to live in distant Kedar.
I am tired of living among people who hate peace.
I search for peace; but when I speak of peace, they want war!
