Psalm 120

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    In my distress to God I cry'd,
       and he gave ear to me.
2    From lying lips, and guileful tongue,
       O Lord, my soul set free.
3    What shall be giv'n thee? or what shall
       be done to thee, false tongue?
4    Ev'n burning coals of juniper,
       sharp arrows of the strong.

5    Woe's me that I in Mesech am
       a sojourner so long;
     That I in tabernacles dwell
       to Kedar that belong.
6    My soul with him that hateth peace
       hath long a dweller been.
7    I am for peace; but when I speak,
       for battle they are keen.
