A Cry for Truth and Peace
A song of ascents.

and He answered me. #Ps 18:6Jnh 2:2
2Lord, deliver me from lying lips
and a deceitful tongue.” #Pr 12:22
3What will He give you,
and what will He do to you,
you deceitful tongue? #Zph 3:13
4A warrior’s sharp arrows
with burning charcoal! # Lit with coals of the broom bush #Pr 25:18
5What misery that I have stayed in Meshech, # = a people far to the north of Palestine #Ezk 27:13
that I have lived among the tents of Kedar! # = a nomadic people of the desert to the southeast #Sg 1:5Ezk 27:21
6I have lived too long
with those who hate peace. #Ps 35:20
7I am for peace; but when I speak,
they are for war. #Ps 109:4
