1In my tzoros I cried unto Hashem, and He heard me. 2Save my nefesh, Hashem, from sefat sheker (lying lips), and from lashon remiyyah (a tongue of deceit). 3What shall be given unto thee? Or what shall be done unto thee, thou lashon remiyyah? 4Sharp khitzim (arrows) of the gibbor, with burning (charcoal) coals of the broom plant. 5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell in the ohalim of Kedar! 6My nefesh hath long dwelt with him that hateth shalom. 7I am for shalom; but when I speak, they are for milchamah (war).
