120:1 <A Song of the going up.> In my trouble my cry went up to the Lord, and he gave me an answer.
120:2 O Lord, be the saviour of my soul from false lips, and from the tongue of deceit.
120:3 What punishment will he give you? what more will he do to you, you false tongue?
120:4 Sharp arrows of the strong, and burning fire.
120:5 Sorrow is mine because I am strange in Meshech, and living in the tents of Kedar.
120:6 My soul has long been living with the haters of peace.
120:7 I am for peace: but when I say so, they are for war.
