Psalm 72 (WEBP)

[1] God, give the king your justice; your righteousness to the royal son.
[2] He will judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.
[3] The mountains shall bring prosperity to the people. The hills bring the fruit of righteousness.
[4] He will judge the poor of the people. He will save the children of the needy, and will break the oppressor in pieces.
[5] They shall fear you while the sun endures; and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
[6] He will come down like rain on the mown grass, as showers that water the earth.
[7] In his days, the righteous shall flourish, and abundance of peace, until the moon is no more.
[8] He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, from the River to the ends of the earth.
[9] Those who dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him. His enemies shall lick the dust.
[10] The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring tribute. The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
[11] Yes, all kings shall fall down before him. All nations shall serve him.
[12] For he will deliver the needy when he cries; the poor, who has no helper.
[13] He will have pity on the poor and needy. He will save the souls of the needy.
[14] He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence. Their blood will be precious in his sight.
[15] He will live; and Sheba’s gold will be given to him. Men will pray for him continually. They will bless him all day long.
[16] Abundance of grain shall be throughout the land. Its fruit sways like Lebanon. Let it flourish, thriving like the grass of the field.
[17] His name endures forever. His name continues as long as the sun. Men shall be blessed by him. All nations will call him blessed.
[18] Praise be to Yahweh God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
[19] Blessed be his glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen and amen.
[20] This ends the prayers by David, the son of Jesse.

Psalm 72 (YLT)

[1] O God, Thy judgments to the king give, And Thy righteousness to the king’s son.
[2] He judgeth Thy people with righteousness, And Thy poor with judgment.
[3] The mountains bear peace to the people, And the heights by righteousness.
[4] He judgeth the poor of the people, Giveth deliverance to the sons of the needy, And bruiseth the oppressor.
[5] They fear Thee with the sun, and before the moon, Generation-generations.
[6] He cometh down as rain on mown grass, As showers-sprinkling the earth.
[7] Flourish in his days doth the righteous, And abundance of peace till the moon is not.
[8] And he ruleth from sea unto sea, And from the river unto the ends of earth.
[9] Before him bow do the inhabitants of the dry places, And his enemies lick the dust.
[10] Kings of Tarshish and of the isles send back a present. Kings of Sheba and Seba a reward bring near.
[11] And all kings do bow themselves to him, All nations do serve him,
[12] For he delivereth the needy who crieth, And the poor when he hath no helper,
[13] He hath pity on the poor and needy, And the souls of the needy he saveth,
[14] From fraud and from violence he redeemeth their soul, And precious is their blood in his eyes.
[15] And he liveth, and giveth to him of the gold of Sheba, And prayeth for him continually, All the day he doth bless him.
[16] There is a handful of corn in the earth, On the top of mountains, Shake like Lebanon doth its fruit, And they flourish out of the city as the herb of the earth.
[17] His name is to the age, Before the sun is his name continued, And they bless themselves in him, All nations do pronounce him happy.
[18] Blessed is Jehovah God, God of Israel, He alone is doing wonders, And blessed is the Name of His honour to the age, And the whole earth is filled with His honour. Amen, and amen! The prayers of David son of Jesse have been ended.
