Psalm 72

Prayer for Guidance and Support for the King

Of Solomon.

1

Give the king your justice, O God,

and your righteousness to a king’s son.

2

May he judge your people with righteousness,

and your poor with justice.

3

May the mountains yield prosperity for the people,

and the hills, in righteousness.

4

May he defend the cause of the poor of the people,

give deliverance to the needy,

and crush the oppressor.

 

5

May he live while the sun endures,

and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.

6

May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass,

like showers that water the earth.

7

In his days may righteousness flourish

and peace abound, until the moon is no more.

 

8

May he have dominion from sea to sea,

and from the River to the ends of the earth.
