1 When I was in trouble I called upon the Lord,*
and he hearkened to my calling.
2 Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips*
and from a deceitful tongue.
3 What reward shall be given or done unto you, O false tongue?*
Even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.
4 Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell in Meshech,*
and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.
5 My soul has long dwelt among those*
who are enemies of peace.
6 I labor for peace, but when I speak to them of it,*
they make themselves ready for battle.
