Psalm 120

1] Heavenly Mother, I call unto you in my distress, and I receive your comfort.

2] Keep me safe, by your favour, Heavenly Mother, from the lies and deceit of the servants of the enmity.

3] O speakers who serve the enmity in their words, what shall you receive from Her Cause?

4] Your foolishness shall be pierced by wisdom; the burning fire of truth shall overpower all your lies.

5] Woe has been my lot, for my sojourning has been prolonged, among this petty and deceitful people.

6] Long has my soul dwelt among those who hate peace.

7] Peace for which I long; but when I speak, they declare war.
