1 When I was in trouble, I cried out to Jehovah, and he answered me.
2 O Jehovah, rescue me from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue.
3 You deceitful tongue, what can Jehovah give you? What more can he do for you?
4 He will give you a warrior's sharpened arrows and red-hot coals.
5 How horrible it is to live as a foreigner in Meshech or to stay in the tents of Kedar.
6 I have lived too long with those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace, but when I talk about it, they only talk about war.
