1 A song of ascents. In my distress I cried out to the Lord and he answered me. 2 I said, "O Lord, rescue me from those who lie with their lips and those who deceive with their tongue.
3 How will he severely punish you, you deceptive talker? 4 Here's how! With the sharp arrows of warriors, with arrowheads forged over the hot coals.
5 How miserable I am! For I have lived temporarily in Meshech; I have resided among the tents of Kedar. 6 For too long I have had to reside with those who hate peace. 7 I am committed to peace, but when I speak, they want to make war.
