|<< Psalm 120 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
[A song for going up to worship.] When I was in trouble, I cried out to the LORD, and he answered me.
2O LORD, rescue me from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue.
3You deceitful tongue, what can the LORD give you? What more can he do for you?
4He will give you a warrior's sharpened arrows and red-hot coals.
5How horrible it is to live as a foreigner in Meshech or to stay in the tents of Kedar.
6I have lived too long with those who hate peace.
7I am for peace, but when I talk about it, they only talk about war.
