He willa judge your people in righteousness,1 your afflicted ones with justice.
The mountains will bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness.
He will defend the afflicted2 among the people and save the children of the needy;3 he will crush the oppressor.45
He will endureb5 as long as the sun, as long as the moon, through all generations.66
He will be like rain7 falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth.
In his days the righteous will flourish;8 prosperity will abound till the moon is no more.
He will rule from sea to sea and from the Riverc9 to the ends of the earth.d109
The desert tribes will bow before him and his enemies will lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish11 and of distant shores12 will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba13 and Seba will present him gifts.1411
All kings will bow down15 to him and all nations will serve16 him.
For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.
He will take pity17 on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death.
He will rescue18 them from oppression and violence, for precious19 is their blood in his sight.
Long may he live! May gold from Sheba20 be given him. May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long.2116
Let grain22 abound throughout the land; on the tops of the hills may it sway. Let its fruit23 flourish like Lebanon;24 let it thrive like the grass of the field.2517
May his name endure forever;26 may it continue as long as the sun.27 All nations will be blessed through him, and they will call him blessed.28
