A Song of Ascents.View Pointing:
1Unto the Lord in my distress
I called, and He answered me:
2O Lord, deliver my soul from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
3What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be added unto thee,
unto the deceitful tongue?
4Arrows of the mighty, sharpened,
together with coals of the broom tree!
5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech,
that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
6Long hath my soul had its dwelling
with him that hateth peace.
7I am for peace, but when I speak,
they are for war.
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, both now and ever,
and unto ages of ages. Amen.
