    Psalms 72
    King James Version

    1 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.​
    11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him:
    all nations shall serve him.​

    12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth;
    the poor also, and him that hath no helper.​
    13 He shall spare the poor and needy,
    and shall save the souls of the needy.​
    14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence:
    and precious shall their blood be in his sight.​

    15 And he shall live,
    and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba:
    prayer also shall be made for him continually;
    and daily shall he be praised.​

    16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth
    upon the top of the mountains;
    the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon:
    and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.​

    17 His name shall endure for ever:
    his name shall be continued 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 doeth wondrous things.​
    19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever:
    and let the whole earth be filled with his glory;
    Amen, and Amen.​

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