120:1In my trouble I called unto Jehovah, and he answered me.
120:2Jehovah, deliver my soul from the lying lip, from the deceitful tongue.
120:3What shall be given unto thee, what shall be added unto thee, thou deceitful tongue?
120:4Sharp arrows of a mighty one, with burning coals of broom-wood.
120:5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
120:6My soul hath long dwelt with them that hate peace.
120:7I am for peace; but when I speak, *they* are for war.
121:1I lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: whence shall my help come?
121:2My help cometh from Jehovah, who made the heavens and the earth.
121:3He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
121:4Behold, he that keepeth Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
121:5Jehovah is thy keeper, Jehovah is thy shade upon thy right hand;
121:6The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
121:7Jehovah will keep thee from all evil; he will keep thy soul.
121:8Jehovah will keep thy going out and thy coming in, from henceforth and for evermore.
122:1I rejoiced when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of Jehovah.
122:2Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
122:3Jerusalem, which art built as a city that is compact together,
122:4Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of Jah, a testimony to Israel, to give thanks unto the name of Jehovah.
122:5For there are set thrones for 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 bulwarks, prosperity within thy palaces.
122:8For my brethren and companions' sakes I will say, Peace be within thee!
122:9Because of the house of Jehovah our God I will seek thy good.
123:1Unto thee do I lift up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
123:2Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress, so our eyes are directed to Jehovah our God, until he be gracious unto us.
123:3Be gracious unto us, O Jehovah, be gracious unto us; for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
123:4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, with the contempt of the proud.
