Psalm 120
The Scriptures (ISR 1998)

1In my distress I cried to יהוה, And He answered me.

2יהוה, deliver my being from false lips, From a treacherous tongue.

3What would one give to you, Or what would one do to you, O treacherous tongue?

4Sharp arrows of a mighty man, With coals of the broom-wood!

5Woe to me for I have sojourned in Mesheḵ, I have dwelt among the tents of Qĕḏar!

6My being has dwelt too long With him who hates peace.

7I am for peace; But when I speak, they are for fighting.

Psalm 119
