A Song of Ascents.
 In my distress I called to the LORD,
and he answered me.
 Deliver me, O LORD,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
 What shall be given to you,
and what more shall be done to you,
you deceitful tongue?
 A warrior’s sharp arrows,
with glowing coals of the broom tree!
 Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech,
that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
 Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
 I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war! (ESV)
