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.

deceiful and lieing tongue always found themselves in trouple and seriouse disgrace. Being part of such friends can lead's to a place of embarrassment. Deceitful and lieing tongue can not inherite the kingdom of God, stay away from it and them.

Timothy Wayne George's Psalms Chapter 120 comment about verse 7 on 5/28/2013, 6:27am...
The Psalmist says I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war. There is no peace unto the wicked. They are like the troubled sea, that tosses to and fro. Jehovah will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trust in thee. Satan is a murderer, and the father of lies. We must hate lies, and speak the truth to your neighbor. All liars will find their spot in the lake of fire. The truth will set you free. May the Lord guide our hearts in the way of peace. Be at peace with all men, and follow holiness, for without holiness, no man will see the Lord.
Joyce Hutto's Psalms Chapter 120 comment on 4/03/2013, 1:00pm...
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!
Emmanuel's Psalms Chapter 120 comment on 1/30/2013, 2:42pm...
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.
William's Psalms Chapter 120 comment on 11/01/2012, 8:37am...
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.
Lette's Psalms Chapter 120 comment on 10/22/2012, 7:57am...
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.
