1
{A Song of degrees.}
In my trouble I called unto Jehovah, and he answered me.
2
Jehovah, deliver my soul from the lying lip, from the deceitful tongue.
3
What shall be given unto thee, what shall be added unto thee, thou deceitful tongue?
4
Sharp arrows of a mighty one, with burning coals of broom-wood.
5
Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6
My soul hath long dwelt with them that hate peace.
7
I [am for] peace;
but when I speak, *they* [are] for war.
