Psalm 120:4-6 The Passion Translation (TPT)

You will be pierced through with condemnation
and consumed with burning coals of fire!
Why am I doomed to live as an alien,
scattered among these cruel savages?[a]
Am I destined to dwell in the darkened tents of desert nomads?[b]
For too long I’ve had to live among those who hate peace.


  1. Psalm 120:5 The Hebrew text includes the word Meshech, which is a foreign land. The meaning of the word Meshech is “to scatter” and may refer to ancient Persia.
  2. Psalm 120:5 The Hebrew text includes the word Kedar, who was one of Ishmael’s sons, whose descendants became a wandering group of nomads. Kedar means a dark place. See Song 1:5.
