1
A Song of Ascents.
In my distress I called unto the LORD, and He answered me.
2
O LORD, deliver my soul from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
3
What shall be given unto thee, and what shall be done more unto thee, thou deceitful tongue?
4
Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of broom.
5
Woe is me, that I sojourn with Meshech, that I dwell beside the tents of Kedar!
6
My soul hath full long had her dwelling with him that hateth peace.
7
I am all peace;
but when I speak, they are for war.
