1 Give the King your judgments, O God,*
and your righteousness to the King's son.
2 Then shall he judge your people with righteousness*
and defend the poor with justice.
3 The mountains also shall bring peace,*
and the little hills righteousness to the people.
4 He shall vindicate the poor among the people,*
defend the children of the poor, and punish the wrongdoer.
5 They shall fear you as long as the sun and moon endure,*
from one generation to another.
6 He shall come down like the rain upon the mown grass,*
even as showers that water the earth.
7 In his time shall the righteous flourish,*
even an abundance of peace, so long as the moon endures.
8 His dominion shall be also from one sea to the other,*
and from the river unto the world's end.
9 Those who dwell in the wilderness shall kneel before him;*
his enemies shall lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall give presents;*
the kings of Arabia and Seba shall bring gifts.
11 All kings shall fall down before him;*
all nations shall do him service.
12 For he shall deliver the poor when he cries,*
the needy also, and the one that has no helper.
13 He shall be favorable to the lowly and needy,*
and shall preserve the lives of the poor.
14 He shall deliver them from falsehood and wrong,*
and dear shall their blood be in his sight.
15 Long may he live! And unto him shall be given the gold of Arabia;*
prayer shall ever be made unto him, and daily shall he be blessed.
16 There shall be an abundance of grain on the earth, thick upon the hilltops;*
its fruit shall flourish like Lebanon, its grain like the grass upon the earth.
17 His Name shall endure for ever; his Name shall remain as long as the sun.*
All the nations shall be blessed through him and shall call him blessed.
18 Blessed be the Lord God, even the God of Israel,*
who alone does wondrous things;
19 And blessed be the Name of his majesty for ever;*
and all the earth shall be filled with his majesty. Amen, Amen.
