Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

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 {Solomon's.} O God! thy justice, give, unto the king, And thy righteousness, unto the son of a king; Psalms 72:2 May he judge, Thy people with righteousness; And thine oppressed ones with justice; Psalms 72:3 May the mountains bring peace to the people, And the hills [be laden] with righteousness; Psalms 72:4 May he, Vindicate the oppressed of the people, Bring deliverance to the children of the needy, and, Crush the oppressor. Psalms 72:5 Let men revere thee, With the sun, And in presence of the moon, Unto the remotest generation. Psalms 72:6 Let him come down, Like rain on fields to be mown, Like myriad drops on land to be reaped. Psalms 72:7 May righteousness, in his days, blossom forth, And abundance of peace, till there be no moon. Psalms 72:8 So let him have dominion, From sea to sea, And from the River [=Euphrates] unto the ends of the earth; Psalms 72:9 Before him, let the men of the desert kneel, But, as for his foes, the dust, let them lick; Psalms 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the Coastlands, A gift, let them render, The kings of Sheba and Seba, A present, let them bring; Psalms 72:11 Yea let all kings, bow down unto him, Let, all nations, serve him; Psalms 72:12 Because he Rescueth, The needy from the rich, The oppressed, who hath no helper; Psalms 72:13 He Pitieth the weak and the needy, And, the lives of the needy, he Saveth: Psalms 72:14 From extortion, and, violence, he Redeemeth their life, And precious is their blood in his sight. Psalms 72:15 Let him live, then! And be there given unto him of the gold of Sheba,—Let prayer also be offered for him continually, All the day, let him be blessed. Psalms 72:16 May there be an abundance of corn in the earth, in the top of the mountains,—Let the fruit thereof, wave like Lebanon, And they of the city bloom like the fresh shoots of the earth. Psalms 72:17 May his Name be age-abiding, In the presence of the sun, let his Name flourish,—And may all the families of the ground bless themselves in him, All nations, pronounce him happy!

He blesseth God.

Psalms 72:18 Blessed be Yahweh God, the God of Israel,—Who doeth wondrous things by himself alone; Psalms 72:19 And blessed be his glorious Name, unto times ago-abiding,—And filled with his glory be all the earth, Amen and Amen! Psalms 72:20 Ended are the prayers of David, son of Jesse.
