A psalm written for people going up to the temple to worship
1 When I had troubles, I called out to Yahweh
and he answered me.
2 I prayed,
“Yahweh, rescue/save me from people [SYN, MTY] who lie to me and try to deceive me!”
3 You people who lie to me, I will tell you [RHQ] what God will do to you
and what he will do to punish you.
4 He will shoot sharp arrows at you like soldiers do,
and he will burn you with red-hot coals from the wood of a broom tree.
5 It is terrible for me, living among cruel/savage [DOU] people
like those who live in Meshech region and Kedar region.
6 I have lived for a long time among people who hate to live with others peacefully.
7 Every time I talk about living together peacefully,
they talk about starting a war.
