The Royals - 72

This being the last psalm of Book 2, a doxology follows.

Of Solomon
O God give your judgments to the king
and your righteousness to the king's son
he will plead for your people with righteousness
and your poor with judgment
the earth supports the poor & needy
Open bracket sun and moon
The mountains will lift up peace to the people
and the hills in righteousness
he will judge the poor of the people
he will save the children of the needy
and will break the oppressor
they will fear you in the sun
and in the presence of the moon
in all generations
the benefit is from the king
close bracket moon
He will come down as rain on the mowing
as saturating showers on earth
righteousness will sprout in his days
and great peace till there is no moon
and he will have dominion from sea to sea
and from the river to the ends of the earth
All worship
In his presence beasts will bow down
and his enemies will lick the dust
kings of Tarshish and the coasts will give a present
kings of Sheba and Seba will offer a gift
and all kings will bow down to him
all nations will serve him
because the needy & poor benefit
For he will deliver the needy when he cries
and the poor without a helper
he will have compassion on the weak and the needy
and the lives of the needy he will save from injury
and from violence he will redeem their lives
and their blood will be precious in his eyes
the king is supported
and he will live
and he will give to him the gold of Sheba
and he will intercede for him continually
all the day he will bless him
the earth is fruitful
And a touch of corn in the earth
will become as the top of the mountains
its fruit will shake like Lebanon
and will blossom from the city
and will become like the grass of the earth
the king is for ever
close bracket sun
his name will be for ever
his name will continue in the presence of the sun
and they will bless themselves in him -
all nations will call him happy
it is God's doing through his servant
for the whole earth
Bless יְהוָה God the God of Israel
doing wonders for his servant
and bless the name of his glory for ever
and let all the earth be full of his glory

Amen and amen
Concluded are the prayers of David the son of Jesse
