Psalms 120

1 When I was in trouble, I called to the Lord, and he answered me.
2 Save me, Lord, from liars and deceivers.
3 You liars, what will God do to you? How will he punish you?
4 With a soldier's sharp arrows, with red-hot coals!
5 Living among you is as bad as living in Meshech or among the people of Kedar.
6 I have lived too long with people who hate peace!
7 When I speak of peace, they are for war.
