Psalms 72:1-7

1 God, give your judgments to the king. Give your righteousness to the king's son.
2 Let him judge your people with righteousness and your poor ones with justice.
3 Let the mountains bring peace to the people; let the hills bring righteousness.
4 Let the king bring justice to people who are poor; let him save the children of those who are needy, but let him crush oppressors!
5 Let the king live as long as the sun, as long as the moon, generation to generation.
6 Let him fall like rain upon fresh-cut grass, like showers that water the earth.
7 Let the righteous flourish throughout their lives, and let peace prosper until the moon is no more.

Psalms 72:10-14

10 Let the kings of Tarshish and the islands bring tribute; let the kings of Sheba and Seba present gifts.
11 Let all the kings bow down before him; let all the nations serve him.
12 Let it be so, because he delivers the needy who cry out, the poor, and those who have no helper.
13 He has compassion on the weak and the needy; he saves the lives of those who are in need.
14 He redeems their lives from oppression and violence; their blood is precious in his eyes.
