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 Woe 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!
