The Psalms

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness
A Song of degrees.

1  In my distress I cried unto the LORD,
and he heard me.
2  Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips,
and from a deceitful tongue.
3  What shall be given unto thee?
Or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
4  Sharp arrows of the mighty,
with coals of juniper.
5  Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech,
that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
6  My soul hath long dwelt
with him that hateth peace.
7  I am for peace:
but when I speak, they are for war.
