Some Random Thoughts on Psalm 120 by Bev Schlomann

My dear friend Bev, always has a good application from the Psalms. This one hit me in the mind and the heart today.


Psalm 120:1-7 CSB – 1 In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. 2 “LORD, rescue me from lying lips and a deceitful tongue.” 3 What will he give you, and what will he do to you, you deceitful tongue? 4 A warrior’s sharp arrows with burning charcoal! 5 What misery that I have stayed in Meshech, that I have lived among the tents of Kedar! 6 I have dwelt too long with those who hate peace. 7 I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.

Lying lips
Deceitful tongue
Meshech and Kedar (foreign, often barbaric tribes who were hostile enemies of Israel)
Those who hate peace

Is it any wonder that the psalmist is in distress (trouble, affliction, adversity)?! Have you been there?

I didn’t know how to respond to recent events. I have no human experience with this. I could only go to the Word.

I have gone through many emotions: shocked, saddened, dismayed, anger, and during all those, prayer throughout.

Any Recommendations?

Are you interested in studying this summer?

Every summer I like to do a precept upon precept Bible study.

I like it to be a stand-alone study. This means that those students who are taking my Genesis classes will pause studying Genesis for the summer and potentially sign up for something different.

This also allows students who are otherwise without a Bible study because many Bible study leaders take the summer off spend with both family and to prepare for the next year’s lessons.

Our study would need to be less than 11 weeks long and have only one part to it.

Please let me know in the comments if you have an opinion as to what you would like to sign up for this summer.
