Psalm 72
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1BY SOLOMON. O God, give Your judgments to the king, || And Your righteousness to the king’s Son.

2He judges Your people with righteousness, || And Your poor with judgment.

3The mountains bear peace to the people, || And the heights by righteousness.

4He judges the poor of the people, || Gives deliverance to the sons of the needy, || And bruises the oppressor.

5They fear You with the sun, and before the moon, || Generation—generations.

6He comes down as rain on mown grass, || As showers—sprinkling the earth.

7The righteous flourish in His days, || And abundance of peace until the moon is not.

8And He rules from sea to sea, || And from the river to the ends of the earth.

9Desert-dwellers bow before Him, || And His enemies lick the dust.

10Kings of Tarshish and of the islands send back a present. Kings of Sheba and Seba bring a reward near.

11And all kings bow themselves to Him, || All nations serve Him,

12For He delivers the needy who cries, || And the poor when he has no helper,

13He has pity on the poor and needy, || And He saves the souls of the needy,

14He redeems their soul from fraud and from violence, || And their blood is precious in His eyes.

15And He lives, and the gold of Sheba [is] given to Him, || And prayer is continually made for Him, || All day He is continually blessed.

16There is a handful of grain in the earth, || On the top of mountains, || Its fruit shakes like Lebanon, || And they flourish out of the city as the herb of the earth.

17His Name is for all time, || Before the sun is His Name continued, || And they bless themselves in Him, || All nations pronounce Him blessed.

18Blessed is YHWH God, God of Israel, || He alone is doing wonders,

19And blessed [is] the Name of His glory for all time, || And the whole earth is filled [with] His glory. Amen and amen!

The prayers of David son of Jesse have been ended.
