Psalm 120

(from Day 27 Morning Prayer)

Ad Dominum

  1. WHEN I was in trouble I called upon the Lord: and he heard me.
  2. Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips: and from a deceitful tongue.
  3. What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue: even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.
  4. Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech: and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.
  5. My soul hath long dwelt among them: that are enemies unto peace.
  6. I labour for peace, but when I speak unto them thereof: they make them ready to battle.
