120:1In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
120:2Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
120:3What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
120:4Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
120:5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
120:6My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
120:7I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
121:1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
121:2My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
121:3He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
121:4Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
121:5The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
121:6The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
121:7The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
121:8The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
122:1I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
122:2Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
122:3Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
122:4Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
122:5For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
122:6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
122:7Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
122:8For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
122:9Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
123:1Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
123:2Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
123:3Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
123:4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
