120:1 A Song of Ascents. In my distress I called unto the Lord, and He answered me.
120:2 O the Lord, deliver my soul from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
120:3 What shall be given unto thee, and what shall be done more unto thee, thou deceitful tongue?
120:4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of broom.
120:5 Woe is me, that I sojourn with Meshech, that I dwell beside the tents of Kedar!
120:6 My soul hath full long had her dwelling with him that hateth peace.
120:7 I am all peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
