8

May he have dominion from sea to sea,

and from the River to the ends of the earth.

9

May his foes bow down before him,

and his enemies lick the dust.

10

May the kings of Tarshish and of the isles

render him tribute,

may the kings of Sheba and Seba

bring gifts.

11

May all kings fall down before him,

all nations give him service.

 

12

For he delivers the needy when they call,

the poor and those who have no helper.

13

He has pity on the weak and the needy,

and saves the lives of the needy.

14

From oppression and violence he redeems their life;

and precious is their blood in his sight.

 

15

Long may he live!

May gold of Sheba be given to him.

May prayer be made for him continually,

and blessings invoked for him all day long.

16

May there be abundance of grain in the land;

may it wave on the tops of the mountains;

may its fruit be like Lebanon;

and may people blossom in the cities

like the grass of the field.

17

May his name endure forever,

his fame continue as long as the sun.

May all nations be blessed in him;

may they pronounce him happy.

 

18

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,

who alone does wondrous things.

19

Blessed be his glorious name forever;

may his glory fill the whole earth.

Amen and Amen.
