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: Wo 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!
