A Song of Ascents
1 In my distress I have cried out unto Jehovah, and He heard me.
2 Rescue my soul, O Jehovah, from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue.
3 What shall be given to you, or what shall be done to you, O deceitful tongue?
4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of the broom tree!
5 Woe is me, that I have sojourned in Meshech, that I have dwelt in the tents of Kedar!
6 My soul has dwelt long with him who hates peace.
7 I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
