A Prayer for Help

120 When I was in trouble, I called to the Lord,
    and he answered me.
Save me, Lord,
    from liars and deceivers.

You liars, what will God do to you?
    How will he punish you?
With a soldier's sharp arrows,
    with red-hot coals!

Living among you is as bad as living in Meshech
    or among the people of Kedar.[a]
I have lived too long
    with people who hate peace!
When I speak of peace,
    they are for war.
