Psalms 72

For Solomon.

1 O God, give Your judgment to the king, and Your righteousness to the king's son; 2that he may judge Your people with righteousness, and Your poor with judgment. 3Let the mountains and the hills raise peace to Your people. 4He shall judge the poor of the people in righteousness, and save the children of the needy; and shall bring low the false accuser. 5And He shall continue as long as the sun, and before the moon forever. 6He shall come down as rain upon a fleece, and as drops falling upon the earth. 7In His days shall righteousness spring up; and abundance of peace till the moon be removed. 8And He shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth. 9The Ethiopians shall fall down before Him, and His enemies shall lick the dust. 10The kings of Tarshish, and the isles, shall bring presents: the kings of the Arabians and Sheba shall offer gifts. 11And all kings shall worship Him; all the Gentiles shall serve Him. 12For He has delivered the poor from the oppressor; and the needy who had no helper. 13He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall deliver the souls of the needy. 14He shall redeem their souls from oppression and injustice, and their name shall be precious before Him. 15And He shall live, and the gold of Arabia shall be given to Him, and men shall pray for Him continually; and all the day shall they praise Him. 16There shall be an establishment on the earth on the tops of the mountains; its fruit shall be exalted above Lebanon, and those of the city shall flourish as grass of the earth. 17Let His name be blessed forever; His name shall endure longer than the sun, and all the tribes of the earth shall be blessed in Him: all nations shall call Him blessed. 18Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, who alone does wonders. 19And blessed is His glorious name forever, even forever and ever; and all the earth shall be filled with His glory. Amen, and Amen. 20The hymns of David the son of Jesse are ended.
