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.
7 In his days may righteousness flourish
   and peace abound, until the moon is no more.


8 May he have dominion from sea to sea,
   and from the River to the ends of the earth.
9 May his foes* bow down before him,
   and his enemies lick the dust.
10 May the kings of Tarshish and of the isles
   render him tribute,
may the kings of Sheba and Seba
   bring gifts.
11 May all kings fall down before him,
   all nations give him service.


12 For he delivers the needy when they call,
   the poor and those who have no helper.
13 He has pity on the weak and the needy,
   and saves the lives of the needy.
