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