[A Psalm] for Solomon.
Give3 the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.
He shall judge4 thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
The mountains shall bring4 peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
He shall judge4 the poor of the people, he shall save55 the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces17 the oppressor.6
They shall fear4 thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
He shall come down4 like rain upon the mown grass: as showers [that] water the earth.
In his days shall the righteous flourish;4 and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
He shall have dominion4 also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow4 before him; and his enemies6 shall lick17 the dust.
The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring55 presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer55 gifts.
Yea, all kings shall fall down101 before him: all nations shall serve4 him.
For he shall deliver55 the needy when he crieth;18 the poor also, and [him] that hath no helper.6
He shall spare4 the poor and needy, and shall save55 the souls of the needy.
He shall redeem4 their soul from deceit and violence: and precious4 shall their blood be in his sight.
And he shall live,4 and to him shall be given4 of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made101 for him continually; [and] daily shall he be praised.17
There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake4 like Lebanon: and [they] of the city shall flourish55 like grass of the earth.
His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued11 5125 55 as long as the sun: and [men] shall be blessed101 in him: all nations shall call him blessed.17
Blessed7 [be] the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth6 wondrous things.12
And blessed7 [be] his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled11 [with] his glory; Amen, and Amen.
The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.27
