Psalm 72

Prayer for Guidance and Support for the King

Of Solomon.
1 Give the king your justice, O God,
   and your righteousness to a king’s son.
2 May he judge your people with righteousness,
   and your poor with justice.
14 From oppression and violence he redeems their life;
   and precious is their blood in his sight.


15 Long may he live!
   May gold of Sheba be given to him.
May prayer be made for him continually,
   and blessings invoked for him all day long.
16 May there be abundance of grain in the land;
   may it wave on the tops of the mountains;
   may its fruit be like Lebanon;
and may people blossom in the cities
   like the grass of the field.
17 May his name endure for ever,
   his fame continue as long as the sun.
May all nations be blessed in him;*
   may they pronounce him happy.


18 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
   who alone does wondrous things.
19 Blessed be his glorious name for ever;
   may his glory fill the whole earth.Amen and Amen.
