A Psalm a Day – Psalm 120

Psalm 120 New International Version

A song of ascents.

I call on the Lord in my distress,
    and he answers me.
Save me, Lord,
    from lying lips
    and from deceitful tongues.

What will he do to you,
    and what more besides,
    you deceitful tongue?
He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows,
    with burning coals of the broom bush.

Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek,
    that I live among the tents of Kedar!
Too long have I lived
    among those who hate peace.
I am for peace;
    but when I speak, they are for war.

One thought on “A Psalm a Day – Psalm 120

  1. For Bellshill Central Church with special reference to Reverend Kevin de Beer. Thank you for posting Psalm 120, which has great meaning for me as a Christian. The psalmist appears to have many enemies. May our Lord guard me from telling untruths and listening to bad tongues. I am on my own life’s journey and pray for our Lord’s mercy,His loving care and guidance. I am unaware of having enemies. With love and my humble prayers.
