A Song of Ascents.
1In my distress, I cried to the Lord.
He answered me.
2Deliver my soul, Lord, from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
3What will be given to you, and what will be done more to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4Sharp arrows of the mighty,
with coals of juniper.
5Woe is me, that I live in Meshech,
that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6My soul has had her dwelling too long
with him who hates peace.
7I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war.
