Psalm 72 1Of Solomon. Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness.

2May he judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice.

3May the mountains bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness.

4May he defend the afflicted among the people and save the children of the needy; may he crush the oppressor.

5May he endure Septuagint; Hebrew You will be feared as long as the sun, as long as the moon, through all generations.

6May he be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth.

7In his days may the righteous flourish and prosperity abound till the moon is no more.
