Endow the King With the Ability to Render Your Justice

A Psalm for Solomon.

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

H · G · S  the king’s son
2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.

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

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

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

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

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

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

H · G · S  the ends of the earth
9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.

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

H · G · S  the kings of Tarshish
11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

H · G · S  
12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

H · G · S  
13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.

H · G · S  
14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.

H · G · S  
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.

H · G · S  
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.

H · G · S  handful of corn
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.

H · G · S  as long as the sun
18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.

H · G · S  
19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.

H · G · S  blessed be his glorious name
20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended. H · G · S
