Psalm 120

Prayer for Deliverance from the Treacherous.

1 1In my trouble I cried to the LORD, And He answered me.
2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from 2lying lips, From a 3deceitful tongue.
3 What shall be given to you, and what more shall be done to you, You 4deceitful tongue?
4 5Sharp arrows of the warrior, With the burning 6coals of the broom tree.
5 Woe is me, for I sojourn in 7Meshech, For I dwell among the 8tents of 9Kedar!
6 Too long has my soul had its dwelling With those who 10hate peace.
7 I 11am for peace, but when I speak, They are 12for war.
