Psalms 72

1  A Psalm for Solomon. Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.

2  He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.

3  The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.

4  He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

5  They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

6  He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.

7  In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

8  He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

9  They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.

10  The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
