1: God, give the king your justice; your righteousness to the royal son.
2: He will judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.
3: The mountains shall bring prosperity to the people. The hills bring the fruit of righteousness.
4: He will judge the poor of the people. He will save the children of the needy, and will break the oppressor in pieces.
5: They shall fear you while the sun endures; and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
6: He will come down like rain on the mown grass, as showers that water the earth.
7: In his days, the righteous shall flourish, and abundance of peace, until the moon is no more.
8: He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, from the River to the ends of the earth.
9: Those who dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him. His enemies shall lick the dust.
10: The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring tribute. The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
11: Yes, all kings shall fall down before him. All nations shall serve him.
12: For he will deliver the needy when he cries; the poor, who has no helper.
13: He will have pity on the poor and needy. He will save the souls of the needy.
14: He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence. Their blood will be precious in his sight.
15: They shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba. Men shall pray for him continually. They shall bless him all day long.
16: Abundance of grain shall be throughout the land. Its fruit sways like Lebanon. Let it flourish, thriving like the grass of the field.
17: His name endures forever. His name continues as long as the sun. Men shall be blessed by him. All nations will call him blessed.
18: Praise be to Yahweh God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
19: Blessed be his glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen and amen.
