The Reign of the Righteous King.

A Psalm of Solomon.

72 Give the king (A)Your judgments, O God,
And (B)Your righteousness to the king’s son.
[a]May [b]he (C)judge Your people with righteousness
And [c](D)Your afflicted with justice.
[d]Let the mountains bring [e](E)peace to the people,
And the hills, in righteousness.
[f]May he (F)vindicate the [g]afflicted of the people,
Save the children of the needy
And crush the oppressor.

[h]Let them fear You (G)while the sun endures,
And [i]as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
