Psalm 120

Psalm 120

*A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

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

2 Rescue me, O Lord, from liars and from all deceitful people.

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

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

5 How I suffer in far-off Meshech. It pains me to live in distant Kedar.

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

7 I search for peace; but when I speak of peace, they want war!

Love, your servant Garrett
