I Am for Shalom
1A Song of Ascents. In my trouble I cried out to Adonai, and He answered me.
2Adonai, deliver my soul from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
3What can be given to you, and what more can be done to you, O deceitful tongue?—
4sharp arrows of the mighty, with burning coals of a broom tree!
5Woe to me, for I sojourn in Meshech, for I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6My soul has too long dwelt with those who hate shalom.
7I am for shalom and thus I speak, but they are for war!
