|<< Psalm 72 >>|
Young's Literal Translation
Give the King Your Justice
(1 Kings 3:1-5; 2 Chronicles 1:1-6; Psalm 45:1-17)
1By Solomon. O God, Thy judgments to the king give, And Thy righteousness to the king’s son.
2He judgeth Thy people with righteousness, And Thy poor with judgment.
3The mountains bear peace to the people, And the heights by righteousness.
4He judgeth the poor of the people, Giveth deliverance to the sons of the needy, And bruiseth the oppressor.
5They fear Thee with the sun, and before the moon, Generation — generations.
6He cometh down as rain on mown grass, As showers — sprinkling the earth.
7Flourish in his days doth the righteous, And abundance of peace till the moon is not.
8And he ruleth from sea unto sea, And from the river unto the ends of earth.
9Before him bow do the inhabitants of the dry places, And his enemies lick the dust.
10Kings of Tarshish and of the isles send back a present. Kings of Sheba and Seba a reward bring near.
11And all kings do bow themselves to him, All nations do serve him,
12For he delivereth the needy who crieth, And the poor when he hath no helper,
13He hath pity on the poor and needy, And the souls of the needy he saveth,
14From fraud and from violence he redeemeth their soul, And precious is their blood in his eyes.
15And he liveth, and giveth to him of the gold of Sheba, And prayeth for him continually, All the day he doth bless him.
16There 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.
17His name is to the age, Before the sun is his name continued, And they bless themselves in him, All nations do pronounce him happy.
18Blessed is Jehovah God, God of Israel, He alone is doing wonders,
19And blessed [is] the Name of His honour to the age, And the whole earth is filled [with] His honour. Amen, and amen!
20The prayers of David son of Jesse have been ended.
