1. The LORD answered me when I called in my distress:
2. LORD, deliver me from lying lips, from treacherous tongues.
3. What will the Lord inflict on you, O treacherous tongue, and what more besides?
4. A warrior's sharpened arrows and fiery coals of brush wood!
5. Alas, I was an alien in Meshech, I lived near the tents of Kedar!
6. Too long did I live among those who hated peace.
7. When I spoke of peace, they were for war.
