A song for going up to the Temple.
1 I was in trouble.
I called to the LORD for help,
and he answered me!
2 I said, “LORD, save me from liars,
from those who say things that are not true.”
3 Liars, do you know what the Lord has for you?
Do you know what you will get?
4 You will get a soldier’s sharp arrow
and hot coals to punish you.
5 How I hate living here among these people!
It’s like living in Meshech or in the tents of Kedar.* Meshech … Kedar Places where the people were known as wild and savage fighters.
6 I have lived too long
with those who hate peace.
7 I ask for peace,
but they want war.
*120:5 Meshech … Kedar Places where the people were known as wild and savage fighters.
