مزامير 120

تَرْنِيمَةُ ٱلْمَصَاعِدِ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ضِيْقِي صَرَخْتُ فَٱسْتَجَابَ لِي.١1
A song of ascents. In distress I cried to the Lord, and he answered me.
يَارَبُّ، نَجِّ نَفْسِي مِنْ شِفَاهِ ٱلْكَذِبِ، مِنْ لِسَانِ غِشٍّ.٢2
“Deliver me, Lord, from the lip that is false and the tongue that is crafty.”
مَاذَا يُعْطِيكَ وَمَاذَا يَزِيدُ لَكَ لِسَانُ ٱلْغِشِّ؟٣3
What shall he give to you, you tongue that is crafty? What yet shall he give to you?
سِهَامَ جَبَّارٍ مَسْنُونَةً مَعَ جَمْرِ ٱلرَّتَمِ.٤4
Arrows of warrior, sharpened, with glowing broom coals together.
وَيْلِي لِغُرْبَتِي فِي مَاشِكَ، لِسَكَنِي فِي خِيَامِ قِيدَارَ!٥5
Woe is me that I sojourn in Meshech, that I live by the tents of Kedar.
طَالَ عَلَى نَفْسِي سَكَنُهَا مَعَ مُبْغِضِ ٱلسَّلَامِ.٦6
Already too long have I dwelt amongst those who hate peace.
أَنَا سَلَامٌ، وَحِينَمَا أَتَكَلَّمُ فَهُمْ لِلْحَرْبِ.٧7
I am for peace: but when I speak of it, they are for war.
