Day 27 — Psalm 120

The enemies of peace

Song of Ascents.

When I am in trouble, I call to Yahweh,
and He answers me.
Yahweh, save me from these lying lips
and these faithless tongues!

How will He pay back the false oath
of a faithless tongue?
With war arrows hardened
over red-hot charcoal!

This is worse than a life in Meshech,
or camping in Kedar!

Too long have I lived
among people who hate peace,
who, when I propose peace,
are all for war.

Next… Psalm 121
