Psalm 120

1 To the LORD in the hour of my distress

 I call—and he answers me.

 2 “O LORD, save my soul from lying lips,

 from the tongue of the deceitful.”

3 What should he give you, what repay you,

 O deceitful tongue?

 4 The warrior’s arrows sharpened,

 with red-hot coals from the broom tree!

5 Alas, that I live in Meshech,

 dwell among the tents of Kedar!

 6 I have had enough of dwelling

 with those who hate peace.

 7 I am for peace, but when I speak,

 they are for war.
