Chapter 72

1

 [A Psalm] for Solomon. Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son. 

2

 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment. 

3

 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness. 

4

 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor. 

5

 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations. 

6

 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers [that] water the earth. 

7

 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth. 

8

 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. 

9

 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust. 

10

 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. 

11

 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him. 

12

 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and [him] that hath no helper. 

13

 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy. 

14

 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight. 

15

 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; [and] daily shall he be praised. 

16

 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and [they] of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth. 

17

 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and [men] shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed. 

18

 Blessed [be] the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things. 

19

 And blessed [be] his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled [with] his glory; Amen, and Amen. 

20

 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
