1
A Song of the Ascents.
Unto Jehovah in my distress I have called, And He answereth me.
2
O Jehovah, deliver my soul from a lying lip, From a deceitful tongue!
3
What doth He give to thee? And what doth He add to thee? O deceitful tongue!
4
Sharp arrows of a mighty one, with broom-coals.
5
Wo to me, for I have inhabited Mesech, I have dwelt with tents of Kedar.
6
Too much hath my soul dwelt with him who is hating peace.
7
I [am] peace, and when I speak they [are] for war!
