Psalm 72

Give the king your judgement, O God :
 and your righteousness to the son of a king,
That he may judge your people rightly :
 and the poor of the land with equity.
Let the mountains be laden with peace because of his righteousness :
 and the hills also with prosperity for his people.
May he give justice to the poor among the people :
 and rescue the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor.
May he live while the sun endures :
 and while the moon gives light, throughout all generations.
May he come down like rain upon the new-mown fields :
 and as showers that water the earth.
In his time shall righteousness flourish :
 and abundance of peace, till the moon shall be no more.
His dominion shall stretch from sea to sea :
 from the Great River to the ends of the earth.
His adversaries shall bow down before him :
 and his enemies shall lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring tribute :
 the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
All kings shall fall down before him :
 and all nations do him service.
He will deliver the needy when they cry :
 and the poor man that has no helper.
He will pity the helpless and the needy :
 and save the lives of the poor.
He will redeem them from oppression and violence :
 and their blood shall be precious in his sight.
Long may he live, and be given of the gold of Sheba :
 may prayer be made for him continually,
   and men bless him every day.
Let there be abundance of wheat in the land :
 let it flourish on the tops of the mountains;
Let its ears grow fat like the grain of Lebanon :
 and its sheaves thicken like the grass of the field.
Let his name live for ever :
 and endure as long as the sun.
Let all peoples use his name in blessing :
 and all nations call him blessed.
Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel :
 who alone does great wonders.
Blessed be his glorious name for ever :
 and let the whole earth be filled with his glory.
   Amen, Amen.
