A Psalm for Solomon.

1Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.

2He shall judge thy people with righteousness and thy poor with judgment. 3The mountains shall bring peace to the people and the little hills by righteousness. 4He shall judge the poor of the people; he shall save the children of the destitute and shall break in pieces the violent. 5They shall fear thee along with the sun and before the moon throughout all generations. 6He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass as the dew that waters the earth. 7In his days shall righteousness flourish and abundance of peace until there is no longer any moon. 8He shall have dominion also from sea to sea and from the river unto the ends of the earth. 9Those that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him, and his enemies shall lick the dust. 10The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. 11Yea, all kings shall fall down before him; all Gentiles shall serve him. 12For he shall deliver the destitute when he cries and the poor that has no helper. 13He shall have mercy on the poor and destitute and shall save the souls of the poor in spirit. 14He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence, and precious shall their blood be in his sight. 15And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba; prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily he shall be given blessings. 16There shall be planted a handful of grain in the earth upon the tops of the mountains; its fruit shall thunder like Lebanon; and out of the city they shall blossom like the grass of the earth. 17His name shall endure for ever; before the sun his name shall be disseminated, and all Gentiles shall be blessed in him; they shall call him blessed.

18Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, the only one who does wondrous things 19And blessed be his glorious name for ever, and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen. 20The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
