1. [Song of Ascents *{* The Songs of Ascents (Pss 120-134) were sung by pilgrims on their way up to Jerusalem.} ] To Yahweh when I am in trouble I call and he answers me.

2. Yahweh, save me from lying lips and a treacherous tongue!

3. What will he repay you, what more, treacherous tongue?

4. War-arrows made sharp over red-hot charcoal.

5. How wretched I am, living in Meshech, dwelling in the tents of Kedar!
