1 I was in trouble. I called to the Lord for help. And he saved me! 2 Lord, save me from the people who lied about me. Those people said things that weren’t true. 3 Liars, do you know what you will get? Do you know what you will gain? 4 A soldier’s sharp arrow and hot coals to punish you. 5 You people are liars, and living near you is like living in Meshech. It is like living in tents in Kedar. 6 I have lived too long with people who hate peace. 7 I said I want peace, so they want war.
