Psalms 120-121

Chapter 120

Psalm 120

A song of ascents.

1 I call on the Lord (a) in my distress,(b)
     and he answers me.
2 Save me, Lord ,
     from lying lips(c)
     and from deceitful tongues.(d)

3 What will he do to you,
     and what more besides,
     you deceitful tongue?
4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows,(e)
     with burning coals of the broom bush.

5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek,
     that I live among the tents of Kedar!(f)
6 Too long have I lived
     among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace;
     but when I speak, they are for war.

Chapter 121

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
     where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord ,
     the Maker of heaven(a) and earth.(b)

3 He will not let your foot slip—
     he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches(c) over Israel
     will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord watches over(d) you—
     the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun(e) will not harm you by day,
     nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord will keep you from all harm(f)
     he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
     both now and forevermore.(g)
