El Adonai batsa ratahli
Karati vaya aneni
Adonai hatsila nafshi
Misfat sheker mila-shon-ramiyah
Mah yiten l’cha mah Yosif
Lach’ la-shon ramiyah
Chitse gibor sh’nunim im gachaley
r’tamim
Oyah-li kigarti Meshekh
Sha-chnan-ti im-oha-le Kedar
Rabat shakhna-lah nafshi
Im sone shalom
Ani shalom vehkhi adaber
Hema lamil-khama


Psalm 120


translation


I call on the LORD in my distress,

and He answers me.
Save me, O LORD , from lying lips

and from deceitful tongues.
What will he do to you,

and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows,

with burning coals of the broom tree.
Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech,

that I live among the tents of Kedar!
Too long have I lived

among those who hate peace.
I am a man of peace; but when I speak,

they are for war.
