Psalms 120

CLV(i) 1 {A Song of Ascents{ To Yahweh in my distress I call out that He may answer me. 2 O Yahweh, do rescue my soul From the false lip, From the deceitful tongue." 3 What shall He give to you, And what more shall He add for you, Deceitful tongue? 4 He will send arrows of the masterful, whetted With glowing embers of broom!" 5 Woe to me, for I sojourn in Meshech; I tabernacle among the tents of Kedar." 6 Long enough for itself has my soul tabernacled With a people hating peace. 7 I am for peace, yet when I speak They are for war."
