1 To Solomon. O God, thou wilt give thy judgments to the king, and thy justice to the king's son. 2 He shall judge thy people in justice, and thy poor in judgment. 3 The mountains shall lift up peace to the people, and the hills in justice. 4 He shall judge the poor of the people, and save to the sons of the needy, and he will break in pieces him oppressing.
5 And they shall fear thee with the sun and before the moon, generation of generations. 6 He shall come down as rain upon a fleece, as showers of pouring rain upon the earth. 7 The just one shall break forth in his days, and a multitude of peace even till no moon.
8 And he shall rule from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the. ends of the earth. 9 Inhabitants of the desert shall bow before him, and his enemies shall lick the dust 10 The kings of Tarshish and the islands shall turn back a gift, the kings of Sheba and Seba shall bring a present 11 And all kings shall worship to him: all nations shall serve him.
12 For we will deliver the needy from the powerful one, and the poor and no helper to him. 13 He will spare for the poor and the needy, and he will save the souls of the needy. 14 From oppression and from violence he will redeem their soul, and their blood shall be precious in his eyes.
15 And he shall live, and there shall be given to him from the gold of Sheba: and there shall always be supplications for him; all the day shall they praise him. 16 There shall be diffusion of grain in the earth upon the head of the mountains; its fruit shall shake as Lebanon, and they shall blossom from the city as the grass of the earth. 17 His name shall be forever: his name shall flourish before the sun: and they shall be praised in him: all nations shall pronounce him happy.
