1 A Song of degrees. In my trouble I cried to Jehovah, and He heard me. 2 Deliver my soul, O Jehovah, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
3 What shall be given to you? Or what shall be done to you, O false tongue? 4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of broom.
5 Woe is me, that I live in Mesech; I dwell in the tents of Kedar! 6 My soul has long dwelt with a hater of peace. 7 I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
