New Living Translation


Psalms 120

I took my troubles to the LORD; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.

Rescue me, O LORD, from liars and from all deceitful people.

O deceptive tongue, what will God do to you? How will he increase your punishment?

You will be pierced with sharp arrows and burned with glowing coals.

How I suffer among these scoundrels of Meshech!  It pains me to live with these people from Kedar!

I am tired of living here among people who hate peace.

As for me, I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war!
