1 I call on the LORD in my distress, ¶ and he answers me.
2 Save me, LORD, from lying lips ¶ and from deceitful tongues.
3 What will he do to you, ¶ and what more besides, ¶ you deceitful tongue?
4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom bush.
5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek, ¶ that I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
