Praise be to the Lord,    who […]

A song of ascents. I call on the Lord in my distress,    and he answers me.Save me, Lord,    from lying lips    and from deceitful tongues. What will he do to you,    and what more besides,    you deceitful tongue?He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows,    with burning coals of the broom bush. Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek,    that I live among […]
