1In my distress I cried unto Jehovah, And he answered me.
2Deliver my soul, O Jehovah, from lying lips, [And] from a deceitful tongue.
3What shall be given unto thee, and what shall be done more unto thee, Thou deceitful tongue?
4Sharp arrows of the mighty, With coals of juniper.
5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, That I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6My soul hath long had her dwelling With him that hateth peace.
7I am [for] peace: But when I speak, they are for war. Psalm 121 A Song of Ascents.
