Psalm 120 YLT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of the Ascents. Unto Jehovah in my distress I have called, And He answereth me. 1 I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.
2 O Jehovah, deliver my soul from a lying lip, From a deceitful tongue! 2 Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 What doth He give to thee? And what doth He add to thee? O deceitful tongue! 3 What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
4 Sharp arrows of a mighty one, with broom-coals. 4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.
5 Wo to me, for I have inhabited Mesech, I have dwelt with tents of Kedar. 5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 Too much hath my soul dwelt with him who is hating peace. 6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 I [am] peace, and when I speak they [are] for war! 7 I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
