1 «[A Psalm] for Solomon.» Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.
2 Then shal he iudge thy people in righteousnesse, and thy poore with equitie.
3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers [that] water the earth.
7 In his dayes shall the righteous florish, and abundance of peace shalbe so long as the moone endureth.
8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
9 They that dwell in ye wildernes, shall kneele before him, and his enemies shall licke the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
11 Yea, all Kings shal worship him: all nations shall serue him.
12 For he shall deliuer the poore when he cryeth: the needie also, and him that hath no helper.
13 He shalbe mercifull to the poore and needie, and shall preserue the soules of the poore.
14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; [and] daily shall he be praised.
16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and [they] of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and [men] shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
18 Blessed [be] the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
19 And blessed be his glorious Name for euer: and let all the earth be filled with his glorie. So be it, euen so be it.
20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
