Deliver Me, O Lord

Psalm 120

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

1 I took my troubles to the Lord ;
I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.
2 Rescue me, O  Lord , from liars
and from all deceitful people.

3 O deceptive tongue, what will God do to you?
How will he increase your punishment?
4 You will be pierced with sharp arrows
and burned with glowing coals.

5 How I suffer in far-off Meshech.
It pains me to live in distant Kedar.
6 I am tired of living
among people who hate peace.
7 I search for peace;
but when I speak of peace, they want war!
