Psalm 120

Call upon the Lord when in distress.

A Song of degrees.

1 In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and he heard me.

2 Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, and from a adeceitful 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 aMesech, that I dwell in the btents of cKedar!

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

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