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.
