Psalm 67

The Nations Called to Praise God

To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm. A Song.
1 May God be gracious to us and bless us
   and make his face to shine upon us,
          Selah
2 that your way may be known upon earth,
   your saving power among all nations.
3 Let the peoples praise you, O God;
   let all the peoples praise you.


4 Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
   for you judge the peoples with equity
   and guide the nations upon earth.
          Selah
5 Let the peoples praise you, O God;
   let all the peoples praise you.


6 The earth has yielded its increase;
   God, our God, has blessed us.
7 May God continue to bless us;
   let all the ends of the earth revere him.

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.
3 May the mountains yield prosperity for the people,
   and the hills, in righteousness.
4 May he defend the cause of the poor of the people,
   give deliverance to the needy,
   and crush the oppressor.


5 May he live* while the sun endures,
   and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
6 May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass,
   like showers that water the earth.
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.
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.


20 The prayers of David son of Jesse are ended.
