1 Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.
2 He shall a 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 a.
5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon a, 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 a flourish; and abundance of b so long as the moon endureth.
8 He shall have a also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall a before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall a: the kings of Sheba and b 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 a their soul from deceit and violence: and b 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 a 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 a.
18 a 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 a with his b; Amen, and Amen.
20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
