A Song of Ascents.
1 I called to Yahweh in my distress,
and he answered me.
2 O Yahweh, deliver my soul from lying lips;
from a deceitful tongue.
3 What will be rendered to you,
and what more will be done to you,
O deceitful tongue?
4 Sharp arrows of a warrior,
with burning charcoal of a broom tree.
5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech,
I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6 My soul has had its dwelling too long
with one who hates peace.
7 I am for peace, but when I speak,
they are for war.
