Psalms - Chapter 72

Kingdom of the Messiah: Just

1 A Psalm of Solomon. Give the king Your judgments, O God, And Your righteousness to the king's Son.

2 He will judge Your people with righteousness, And Your poor with justice.

3 The mountains will bring peace to the people, And the little hills, by righteousness.

4 He will bring justice to the poor of the people; He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor.


5 They shall fear You As long as the sun and moon endure, Throughout all generations.

6 He shall come down like rain upon the grass before mowing, Like showers [that] water the earth.

7 In His days the righteous shall flourish, And abundance of peace, Until the moon is no more.


8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.

9 Those who dwell in the wilderness will bow before Him, And His enemies will lick the dust.

10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles Will bring presents; The kings of Sheba and Seba Will offer gifts.

11 Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him; All nations shall serve Him.


12 For He will deliver the needy when he cries, The poor also, and [him] who has no helper.

13 He will spare the poor and needy, And will save the souls of the needy.

14 He will redeem their life from oppression and violence; And precious shall be their blood in His sight.


15 And He shall live; And the gold of Sheba will be given to Him; Prayer also will be made for Him continually, [And] daily He shall be praised.

16 There will be an abundance of grain in the earth, On the top of the mountains; Its fruit shall wave like Lebanon; And [those] of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

17 His name shall endure forever; His name shall continue as long as the sun. And [men] shall be blessed in Him; All nations shall call Him blessed.

18 Blessed [be] the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things!

19 And blessed [be] His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled [with] His glory. Amen and Amen.

20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
