By Solomon.1 God, give the king your justice;
your righteousness to the royal son.
2He will judge your people with righteousness,
and your poor with justice.
3The mountains shall bring prosperity to the people.
The hills bring the fruit of righteousness.
4He will judge the poor of the people.
He will save the children of the needy,
and will break the oppressor in pieces.
5They shall fear you while the sun endures;
and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
6He will come down like rain on the mown grass,
as showers that water the earth.
7In his days, the righteous shall flourish,
and abundance of peace, until the moon is no more.
8He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
from the River to the ends of the earth.
9Those who dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him.
His enemies shall lick the dust.
10The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring tribute.
The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
11Yes, all kings shall fall down before him.
All nations shall serve him.
12For he will deliver the needy when he cries;
the poor, who has no helper.
13He will have pity on the poor and needy.
He will save the souls of the needy.
14He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence.
Their blood will be precious in his sight.
15They shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba.
Men shall pray for him continually.
They shall bless him all day long.
16There shall be abundance of grain throughout the land.
Its fruit sways like Lebanon.
Let it flourish, thriving like the grass of the field.
17His name endures forever.
His name continues as long as the sun.
Men shall be blessed by him.
All nations will call him blessed.
18Praise be to the Lord God, the God of Israel,
who alone does marvelous deeds.
19Blessed be his glorious name forever!
Let the whole earth be filled with his glory!
Amen and amen.
20This ends the prayers by David, the son of Jesse.
