Psalm 120 New Life Version (NLV)
A Prayer for Help
120 I cried to the Lord in my trouble, and He answered me. 2 O Lord, save me from lying lips and a false tongue. 3 What will be given to you and what more will be done to you, you false tongue? 4 He will punish you with sharp arrows of the soldier, and with the hot fire of the broom tree.
5 It is bad for me, for I travel in Meshech and live among the tents of Kedar! 6 I have lived too long with those who hate peace. 7 I am for peace. But when I speak, they are for war.
Psalm 120 New International Version (NIV)
A song of ascents.
1 I call on the Lord in my distress,
3 What will he do to you,
5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek,
