Psalm 120 GW/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 When I was in trouble, I cried out to the LORD, and he answered me. 1 I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.
2 O LORD, rescue me from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue. 2 Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 You deceitful tongue, what can the LORD give you? What more can he do for you? 3 What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
4 He will give you a warrior's sharpened arrows and red-hot coals. 4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.
5 How horrible it is to live as a foreigner in Meshech or to stay in the tents of Kedar. 5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 I have lived too long with those who hate peace. 6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace, but when I talk about it, they only talk about war. 7 I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
