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 {For Solomon.} O God, give the king thy judgments, and thy righteousness unto the king's son. Psalms 72:2 He will judge thy people with righteousness, and thine afflicted with judgment. Psalms 72:3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the hills, by righteousness. Psalms 72:4 He will do justice to the afflicted 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 as long as sun and moon endure, from generation to generation. Psalms 72:6 He shall come down like rain on 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 And he shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. Psalms 72:9 The dwellers in the desert shall bow before him, and his enemies shall lick the dust. Psalms 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render presents; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer tribute: Psalms 72:11 Yea, all kings shall bow down before him; all nations shall serve him. Psalms 72:12 For he will deliver the needy who crieth, and the afflicted, who hath no helper; Psalms 72:13 He will have compassion on the poor and needy, and will save the souls of the needy: Psalms 72:14 He will redeem their souls from oppression and violence, and precious shall their blood be in his sight. Psalms 72:15 And he shall live; and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba; and prayer shall be made for him continually: all the day shall he be blessed. Psalms 72:16 There shall be abundance of corn in the earth, upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon; and they of the city shall bloom like the herb 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 bless themselves in him; all nations shall call him blessed.

He blesseth God.

Psalms 72:18 Blessed be Jehovah Elohim, the God of Israel, who alone 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.
