Psalm 120

C.M. (86.86)
Julie Tennent

1I call the Lord in my distress
and He does answer me.
2O save me, Lord, from lying lips
and tongues that speak deceit.

3What will He do to you, O tongue,
Deceitful as you be?
4He’ll punish you with arrows sharp
and coals of the broom tree.

5O, woe to me, that I must dwell
in Meshech, Keder’s land!
6Too long I’ve lived among the ones
who peace don’t understand.

7For I am one who longs for peace,
But they do peace abhor.
When I speak of my heart for peace,
They only are for war.
