Psalms 72 (asv)
A Psalm of Solomon.
And thy righteousness unto the king's son.
And the hills, in righteousness.
He will save the children of the needy,
And will break in pieces the oppressor.
And so long as the moon, throughout all generations.
72:6He will come down like rain upon the mown grass,
72:7In his days shall the righteous flourish,
72:9They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him;
And his enemies shall lick the dust.
72:10The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render tribute:
72:11Yea, all kings shall fall down before him;
All nations shall serve him.
72:12For he will deliver the needy when he crieth,
And the poor, that hath no helper.
72:13He will have pity on the poor and needy,
And the souls of the needy he will save.
72:14He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence;
And precious will their blood be in his sight:
And men shall pray for him continually;
The fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon:
72:17His name shall endure for ever;
And men shall be blessed in him;
All nations shall call him happy.
Who only doeth wondrous things:
72:19And blessed be his glorious name for ever;
Amen, and Amen.
