Psalm 120 NCV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When I was in trouble, I called to the Lord, and he answered me. 1 I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.
2 Lord, save me from liars and from those who plan evil. 2 Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 You who plan evil, what will God do to you? How will he punish you? 3 What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
4 He will punish you with the sharp arrows of a warrior and with burning coals of wood. 4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.
5 How terrible it is for me to live in the land of Meshech, to live among the people 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 people who hate peace. 6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 When I talk peace, they want war. A song for going up to worship. 7 I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
