A Song of the Ascents.* 120 I called to Jehovah in my distress,+And he answered me.+ 2 O Jehovah, rescue me* from lying lipsAnd from the deceitful tongue. 3 What will He do to you, and how will He punish you,*You deceitful tongue?+ 4 With sharp arrows+ of a warriorAnd burning coals+ of broomwood. 5 Woe to me, for I have lived as a foreigner in Meʹshech!+ I have been dwelling among the tents of Keʹdar.+ 6 I have* been dwelling far too longWith those who hate peace.+ 7 I am for peace, but when I speak,They are for war.
^ Or “my soul.”
