72:1 A Psalm of Solomon. Give the king Thy judgments, O God, and Thy righteousness unto the king's son;

72:2 That he may judge Thy people with righteousness, and Thy poor with justice.

72:3 Let the mountains bear peace to the people, and the hills, through righteousness.

72:4 May he judge the poor of the people, and save the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor.

72:5 They shall fear Thee while the sun endureth, and so long as the moon, throughout all generations.

72:6 May he come down like rain upon the mown grass, as showers that water the earth.

72:7 In his days let the righteous flourish, and abundance of peace, till the moon be no more.

72:8 May he have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the River unto the ends of the earth.

72:9 Let them that dwell in the wilderness bow before him; and his enemies lick the dust.

72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render tribute; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

72:11 Yea, all kings shall prostrate themselves before him; all nations shall serve him.

72:12 For he will deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

72:13 He will have pity on the poor and needy, and the souls of the needy he will save.

72:14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence, and precious will their blood be in his sight.

72:15 That they may live, and that he may give them of the gold of Sheba, that they may pray for him continually, yea, bless him all the day.

72:16 May he be as a rich cornfield in the land upon the top of the mountains; may his fruit rustle like Lebanon; and may they blossom out of the city like grass of the earth.

72:17 May his name endure for ever; may his name be continued as long as the sun; may men also bless themselves by him; may all nations call him happy.

72:18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things;

72:19 And blessed be His glorious name for ever; and let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen, and Amen.

72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended. BOOK III
