Of Solomon

Ps 72:1O God, give Your judgments to the king, / And Your righteousness to the son of the king.

Ps 72:2He will judge Your people in righteousness, / And Your poor with justice.

Ps 72:3The mountains will bear peace to the people, / And the hills, in righteousness.

Ps 72:4He will judge the poor of the people; / He will save the children of the needy / And crush the oppressor.

Ps 72:5They will fear You as long as the sun endures / And as long as the moon endures / Throughout the generations.

Ps 72:6He will drop like rain upon mown grass, / Like abundant showers dripping on the earth.

Ps 72:7In His days the righteous will flourish, / And there will be an abundance of peace / Until the moon is no more.

Ps 72:8And He will have dominion from sea to sea / And from the River unto the ends of the earth.

Ps 72:9The desert dwellers will bow down before Him, / And His enemies will lick the dust.

Ps 72:10The kings of Tarshish and of the coastlands / Will pay tribute; / The kings of Sheba and Seba / Will present gifts.

Ps 72:11And all the kings will bow down before Him; / All the nations will serve Him.

Ps 72:12For He will deliver the needy man when he cries, / And the poor man who has no one to help him.

Ps 72:13He will have pity on the weak and needy, / And the souls of the needy He will save.

Ps 72:14From oppression and violence / He will redeem their soul, / And their blood will be precious in His sight.

Ps 72:15So He shall live and to Him shall be given / The gold of Sheba; / And prayer shall be made continually for Him; / He shall be blessed all the day long.

Ps 72:16There will be an abundance of grain on the earth, / Even at the tops of the mountains. / Its fruit will wave like the forests of Lebanon, / And those of the city will blossom like the foliage of the earth.

Ps 72:17His name will be forever; / As long as the sun endures, His name will spread; / And men will be blessed in Him; / All the nations will call Him blessed.

Ps 72:18Blessed be Jehovah God, the God of Israel, / Who alone does wondrous deeds;

Ps 72:19And blessed be His glorious name forever; / And may His glory fill the whole earth. / Amen and Amen.

Ps 72:20The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

Indicating That the Saints, in Their Experiences,
Realize That the House and the City of God with All the Enjoyments Thereof
Can Be Preserved and Maintained Only
