A Psalm of Ascent 1. I cried out to Yahweh in my distress and He answered me. 2. Deliver my soul, O Yahweh, from the lips of deception, from a deceitful tongue. 3. What shall be given to you, and what more can be added to you, O treacherous tongue? 4. With the sharp arrows of a warrior, with the burning coal of the broom tree. 5. Woe to me, for I dwell in Meshech; I dwell in the tents of Kêdâr. 6. I have dwelled for too long with those who hate peace. 7. I am for peace, but they talk of war.
