Psalm 120 BBE/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 In my trouble my cry went up to the Lord, and he gave me an answer. 1 I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.
2 O Lord, be the saviour of my soul from false lips, and from the tongue of deceit. 2 Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 What punishment will he give you? what more will he do to you, you false tongue? 3 What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
4 Sharp arrows of the strong, and burning fire. 4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.
5 Sorrow is mine because I am strange in Meshech, and living in the tents of Kedar. 5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 My soul has long been living with the haters of peace. 6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace: but when I say so, they are for war. 7 I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
