1[Of Solomon] God, endow the king with your own fair judgement, the son of the king with your ownsaving justice, 2that he may rule your people with justice, and your poor with fair judgement. 3Mountains and hil s, bring peace to the people! With justice 4he wil judge the poor of the people, he wil save the children of the needy and crush their oppressors. 5In the sight of the sun and the moon he wil endure, age after age. 6He will come down like rain on mown grass, like showers moistening the land. 7In his days uprightness shal flourish, and peace in plenty till the moon is no more. 8His empire shal stretch from sea to sea, from the river to the limits of the earth. 9The Beast wil cower before him, his enemies lick the dust; 10the kings of Tarshish and the islands wil pay him tribute. The kings of Sheba and Saba wil offer gifts; 11all kings will do him homage, al nations become his servants. 12For he rescues the needy who cal s to him, and the poor who has no one to help. 13He has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the needy from death. 14From oppression and violence he redeems their lives, their blood is precious in his sight. 15(Long may he live; may the gold of Sheba be given him!) Prayer wil be offered for him constantly,and blessings invoked on him al day. 16May wheat abound in the land, waving on the heights of the hills, like Lebanon with its fruits andflowers at their best, like the grasses of the earth. 17May his name be blessed for ever, and endure in the sight of the sun. In him shal be blessed everyrace in the world, and all nations call him blessed. 18Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, who alone works wonders; 19blessed for ever his glorious name. May the whole world be fil ed with his glory! Amen! Amen! 20End of the prayers of David, son of Jesse.
