Psalm 120 CEB/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I cried out to the LORD when I was in trouble (and he answered me): 1 I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.
2 "LORD, deliver me from lying lips and a dishonest tongue!" 2 Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 What more will be given to you, what more will be done to you, you dishonest tongue? 3 What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
4 Just this: a warrior's sharpened arrows, coupled with burning coals from a wood fire! 4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.
5 Oh, I'm doomed because I have been an immigrant in Meshech, because I've made my home among Kedar's tents. 5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 I've lived far too long with people who hate peace. 6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 I'm for peace, but when I speak, they are for war. 7 I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
