Deliver Me, O Lord
A Song of #Ex. 34:24; 1 Kgs. 12:27; Isa. 30:29Ascents.
1In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
2Deliver me, O Lord,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
3What shall be given to you,
# [1 Sam. 3:17] and what more shall be done to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4 # Ps. 127:4; Jer. 50:9 A warrior’s #Ps. 45:5 sharp arrows,
with glowing #Ps. 140:10; Prov. 25:22coals of the broom tree!
5Woe to me, that I sojourn in #Gen. 10:2; Ezek. 27:13; 38:2, 3; 39:1 Meshech,
that I dwell among #Song 1:5 the tents of #Gen. 25:13; Isa. 60:7; Jer. 49:28; Ezek. 27:21Kedar!
6Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
7 # [Ps. 109:4] I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war!
