1: (For Solomon.) O God, give the king thy judgments, and thy righteousness unto the king's son. 2: He will judge thy people with righteousness, and thine afflicted with judgment. 3: The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the hills, by righteousness. 4: He will do justice to the afflicted of the people; he will save the children of the needy, and will break in pieces the oppressor. 5: They shall fear thee as long as sun and moon endure, from generation to generation. 6: He shall come down like rain on the mown grass, as showers that water the earth. 7: In his days shall the righteous flourish, and abundance of peace till the moon be no more. 8: And he shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. 9: The dwellers in the desert shall bow before him, and his enemies shall lick the dust. 10: The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render presents; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer tribute: 11: Yea, all kings shall bow down before him; all nations shall serve him. 12: For he will deliver the needy who crieth, and the afflicted, who hath no helper; 13: He will have compassion on the poor and needy, and will save the souls of the needy: 14: He will redeem their souls from oppression and violence, and precious shall their blood be in his sight. 15: And he shall live; and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba; and prayer shall be made for him continually: all the day shall he be blessed. 16: There shall be abundance of corn in the earth, upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon; and they of the city shall bloom like the herb of the earth. 17: His name shall endure for ever; his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and [men] shall bless themselves in him; all nations shall call him blessed. 18: Blessed be Jehovah Elohim, the God of Israel, who alone doeth wondrous things! 19: And blessed be his glorious name for ever! and let the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen, and Amen. 20: The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
