I Called upon the LORD in My Distress

  1. I called upon the LORD in my distress;
    he answered me and listened to my plea.
    Deliver me, O LORD, from lying lips,
    from lying lips that speak deceitfully.
  2. To you, deceitful tongue, what shall be giv’n?
    To you, deceitful tongue, what shall be done?
    A warrior’s sharpened arrows you’ll receive
    with coals still glowing, burning from the vine.
  3. O woe to me that I in Meshech dwell,
    that I must sojourn there in Kedar’s tents.
    Too long I’ve lived with those who peace abhor.
    I speak for peace, but then for war they stand.
