Psalm 72 YLT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 By Solomon. O God, Thy judgments to the king give, And Thy righteousness to the king's son. 1 Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness.
2 He judgeth Thy people with righteousness, And Thy poor with judgment. 2 He will judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice.
3 The mountains bear peace to the people, And the heights by righteousness. 3 The mountains will bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness.
4 He judgeth the poor of the people, Giveth deliverance to the sons of the needy, And bruiseth the oppressor. 4 He will defend the afflicted among the people and save the children of the needy; he will crush the oppressor.
5 They fear Thee with the sun, and before the moon, Generation -- generations. 5 He will endure as long as the sun, as long as the moon, through all generations.
6 He cometh down as rain on mown grass, As showers -- sprinkling the earth. 6 He will be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth.
7 Flourish in his days doth the righteous, And abundance of peace till the moon is not. 7 In his days the righteous will flourish; prosperity will abound till the moon is no more.
8 And he ruleth from sea unto sea, And from the river unto the ends of earth. 8 He will rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.
9 Before him bow do the inhabitants of the dry places, And his enemies lick the dust. 9 The desert tribes will bow before him and his enemies will lick the dust.
10 Kings of Tarshish and of the isles send back a present. Kings of Sheba and Seba a reward bring near. 10 The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts.
11 And all kings do bow themselves to him, All nations do serve him, 11 All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him.
12 For he delivereth the needy who crieth, And the poor when he hath no helper, 12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.
13 He hath pity on the poor and needy, And the souls of the needy he saveth, 13 He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death.
14 From fraud and from violence he redeemeth their soul, And precious is their blood in his eyes. 14 He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight.
15 And he liveth, and giveth to him of the gold of Sheba, And prayeth for him continually, All the day he doth bless him. 15 Long may he live! May gold from Sheba be given him. May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long.
16 There is a handful of corn in the earth, On the top of mountains, Shake like Lebanon doth its fruit, And they flourish out of the city as the herb of the earth. 16 Let grain abound throughout the land; on the tops of the hills may it sway. Let its fruit flourish like Lebanon; let it thrive like the grass of the field.
17 His name is to the age, Before the sun is his name continued, And they bless themselves in him, All nations do pronounce him happy. 17 May his name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun. All nations will be blessed through him, and they will call him blessed.
18 Blessed is Jehovah God, God of Israel, He alone is doing wonders, 18 Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
19 And blessed [is] the Name of His honour to the age, And the whole earth is filled [with] His honour. Amen, and amen! 19 Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen.
