Psalm 120

1In my distress I cry to the Lord, that he may answer me:

2“Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.”

3What shall be given to you? And what more shall be done to you, you deceitful tongue?

4A warrior’s sharp arrows, with glowing coals of the broom tree!

5Woe is me, that I am an alien in Meshech, that I must live among the tents of Kedar.

6Too long have I had my dwelling among those who hate peace.

7I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.

Psalm 121

1I lift up my eyes to the hills— from where will my help come?

2My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

3He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.

4He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

5The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand.

6The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.

7The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.

8The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore.
