Psalms 120

God Helped Me
A song of the stairway
1I was desperate for you to help me in my struggles, and you did!
2So come and deliver me now
from this treachery and false accusation.
3O lying deceivers, don’t you know what is your fate?
4You will be pierced through with condemnation
and consumed with burning coals of fire!
5Why am I doomed to live as an alien,
scattered among these cruel savages?
Am I destined to dwell in the darkened tents of desert nomads?
6For too long I’ve had to live among those who hate peace.
7I speak words of peace while they speak words of war,
but they refuse to listen.
