1 A song of degrees. In my distresse I cried vnto the Lord: and hee heard me.
2 Deliuer my soule, O Lord, from lying lips: and from a deceitfull tongue.
3 What shall be giuen vnto thee? or what shalbe done vnto thee, thou false tongue?
4 Sharpe arrowes of the mightie: with coales of iuniper.
5 Woe is me, that I soiourne in Mesech: that I dwell in the tents of Kedar.
6 My soule hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for warre.
