|Prayer for Deliverance from the Treacherous|
|A Song of Ascents.|
| ||IN my distress I cried unto Jehovah,|
And he answered me.
| ||Deliver my soul, O Jehovah, from lying lips,|
And from a deceitful tongue.
| ||What shall be given unto thee, and what shall be done more unto thee,|
Thou deceitful tongue?
| ||Sharp 1 arrows of the mighty,|
With coals of juniper. 2
| ||Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech,|
That I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
| ||My soul hath long had her dwelling|
With him that hateth peace.
| ||I am for peace:|
But when I speak, they are for war.
