Psalm 120

1  A Song of degrees. In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.

2  Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.

3  What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?

4  Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.

5  Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!

6  My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

7  I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
