Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 120 Bible commentary...
The psalmist prays to God to deliver him from false and malicious tongues. (1-4) He complains of wicked neighbours. (5-7)
1-4 The psalmist was brought into great distress by a deceitful tongue. May every good man be delivered from lying lips. They forged false charges against him. In this distress, he sought God by fervent prayer. God can bridle their tongues. He obtained a gracious answer to this prayer. Surely sinners durst not act as they do, if they knew, and would be persuaded to think, what will be in the end thereof. The terrors of the Lord are his arrows; and his wrath is compared to burning coals of juniper, which have a fierce heat, and keep fire very long. This is the portion of the false tongue; for all that love and make a lie, shall have their portion in the lake that burns eternally.
5-7 It is very grievous to a good man, to be cast into, and kept in the company of the wicked, from whom he hopes to be for ever separated. See here the character of a good man; he is for living peaceably with all men. And let us follow David as he prefigured Christ; in our distress let us cry unto the Lord, and he will hear us. Let us follow after peace and holiness, striving to overcome evil with good.

A person who lies on a brother or sister in Christ is the same as murderer and such a person is in danger of the judgement. We should all be careful and mindful of our speech at all times. Too many people's good works have been destroyed by an evil tongue. These things can become warlike in their on way,setting people at odds one with another. Once these things are said,even if an opology has been made,they are out there spreading doubts and deceit. Peace to you all!

According to my understanding of this scripture, God wants us depart from lying lips and from deceitful tongue that will not speak the truth at all times. We're born of peace so we should seek. There is power in our tongue that is why it turns to war and our God is the God of war.

I believe that we being born into sin have burdens of the flesh. As we embrace life sometimes, we think with all the wrong intent only for what might we gain and not what might we do, to obtain salvation and do the will of God through Jesus Christ. Brotherly love to all. Amen.

I feel this scripture is asking God to protect You from People who are being deceitful and lying on You...because We are of Peace but when We speak "they" are for war...just my thoughts.

I FEEL THIS SCRIPTURE TELL GOD THAT WE ARE SORRY FOR LYING AND BEING DECIETFUL AND WANT HIM TO HELP US MAKE A CHANGE IN OUR LIFE AT LEAST THATS WHAT I GOT OUT OF IT AND IT'S ALSO THE SCRIPTURE I READ ALOT FOR A CHANGE IN THINGS THAT COULD HINDER ME FROM HEAVEN.
