«A Song of Ascents
In my distress, I cried to Yahweh. He answered me.
2
Deliver my soul, Yahweh, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
3
What will be given to you, and what will be done more to you, you deceitful tongue?
4
Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
5
Woe is me, that I live in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6
My soul has had her dwelling too long with him who hates peace.
7
I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.
