In my distress I cried unto the Lord, 

And he heard me. 

Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips,

And from a deceitful tongue.

What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto 


Thou false tongue?

Sharp arrows of the mighty,

With coals of juniper.

Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech,

That I dwell in the tents of Kedar!

My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

I am for peace:

But when I speak, they are for war.
