72:1 <Of Solomon.> Give the king your authority, O God, and your righteousness to the king's son.

72:2 May he be a judge of your people in righteousness, and make true decisions for the poor.

72:3 May the mountains give peace to the people, and the hills righteousness.

72:4 May he be a judge of the poor among the people, may he give salvation to the children of those who are in need; by him let the violent be crushed.

72:5 May his life go on as long as the sun and moon, through all generations.

72:6 May he come down like rain on the cut grass; like showers watering the earth.

72:7 In his days may the upright do well, living in peace as long as there is a moon in heaven.

72:8 Let his kingdom be from sea to sea, from the River to the ends of the earth.

72:9 Let those who are against him go down before him; and let his haters be low in the dust.

72:10 Let the kings of Tarshish and of the islands come back with offerings; let the kings of Sheba and Seba give of their stores.

72:11 Yes, let all kings go down before him; let all nations be his servants.

72:12 For he will be a saviour to the poor in answer to his cry; and to him who is in need, without a helper.

72:13 He will have pity on the poor, and be the saviour of those who are in need.

72:14 He will keep their souls free from evil designs and violent attacks; and their blood will be of value in his eyes.

72:15 May he have long life, and may gold from Sheba be given to him: may prayers be made for him at all times; may blessings be on him every day.

72:16 May there be wide-stretching fields of grain in the land, shaking on the top of the mountains, full of fruit like Lebanon: may its stems be unnumbered like the grass of the earth.

72:17 May his name go on for ever, as long as the sun: may men be blessing themselves by him; may all nations be blessing his name.

72:18 Praise be to the Lord God, the God of Israel, the only doer of wonders.

72:19 Praise to the glory of his noble name for ever; let all the earth be full of his glory. So be it, So be it.

72:20 The prayers of David, the son of Jesse, are ended. <A Psalm. Of Asaph.>
