Psalm 120 WBT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)

2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, [and] from a deceitful tongue. 2 Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 What shall be given to thee? or what shall be done to thee, thou false tongue? 3 What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. 4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.
5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, [that] I dwell 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 hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. 6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 I [am] 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.
