The Songs of Ascents is the title given to 15 sequential Psalms in the Bible by the Septuagint and the Vulgate.
1 I call on the Lord in my distress,
and he answers me.
2 Save me, Lord,
from lying lips
and from deceitful tongues.
3 What will he do to you,
and what more besides,
you deceitful tongue?
4 He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows,
with burning coals of the broom bush.
5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek,
that I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 Too long have I lived
among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace;
but when I speak, they are for war.
Have you ever been in a situation where it felt like Meshek? I sure have.
When you feel like an outcast among those who do you wrong, remember that God is always there for you, and you can turn to Him with all your anguish, misery and cries. He will comfort you.
