Endow the king with your justice,1 O God, the royal son with your righteousness.
He willa judge your people in righteousness,2 your afflicted ones with justice.
The mountains will bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness.
He will defend the afflicted3 among the people and save the children of the needy;4 he will crush the oppressor.55
He will endureb6 as long as the sun, as long as the moon, through all generations.76
He will be like rain8 falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth.
In his days the righteous will flourish;9 prosperity will abound till the moon is no more.
He will rule from sea to sea and from the Riverc10 to the ends of the earth.d119
The desert tribes will bow before him and his enemies will lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish12 and of distant shores13 will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba14 and Seba will present him gifts.15
