Psalms 72

David, praying for Solomon, sheweth the goodness and glory of his, in type, and in truth, of Christ's Kingdom.

Psalms 72:1 {[A Psalm] of Solomon.} Give the king thy judgments, O God, And thy righteousness unto the king's son. Psalms 72:2 He will judge thy people with righteousness, And thy poor with justice. Psalms 72:3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, And the hills, in righteousness. Psalms 72:4 He will judge the poor of the people, He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor. Psalms 72:5 They shall fear thee while the sun endureth, And so long as the moon, throughout all generations. Psalms 72:6 He will come down like rain upon the mown grass, As showers that water the earth. Psalms 72:7 In his days shall the righteous flourish, And abundance of peace, till the moon be no more. Psalms 72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, And from the River unto the ends of the earth. Psalms 72:9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; And his enemies shall lick the dust. Psalms 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render tribute: The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Psalms 72:11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him; All nations shall serve him. Psalms 72:12 For he will deliver the needy when he crieth, And the poor, that hath no helper. Psalms 72:13 He will have pity on the poor and needy, And the souls of the needy he will save. Psalms 72:14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence; And precious will their blood be in his sight: Psalms 72:15 And they shall live; and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: And men shall pray for him continually; They shall bless him all the day long. Psalms 72:16 There shall be abundance of grain 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. Psalms 72:17 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 happy.

He blesseth God.

Psalms 72:18 Blessed be Jehovah God, the God of Israel, Who only doeth wondrous things: Psalms 72:19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever; And let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen, and Amen. Psalms 72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
