Give the King your judgments, O God, *
and your righteousness to the King’s son.
Then shall he judge your people with righteousness *
and defend the poor with justice.
The mountains also shall bring peace, *
and the little hills righteousness to the people.
He shall vindicate the poor among the people, *
defend the children of the poor, and punish the wrongdoer.
They shall fear you as long as the sun and moon endure, *
from one generation to another.
He shall come down like the rain upon the mown grass, *
even as showers that water the earth.
In his time shall the righteous flourish, *
even an abundance of peace, so long as the moon endures.
His dominion shall be also from one sea to the other, *
and from the river unto the world’s end.
Those who dwell in the wilderness shall kneel before him; *
his enemies shall lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall give presents; *
the kings of Arabia and Seba shall bring gifts.
All kings shall fall down before him; *
all nations shall do him service.
