Bible: Psalm 72:1-7

Psalm 72 1 

72:1 For 2  Solomon.

O God, grant the king the ability to make just decisions! 3 

Grant the king’s son 4  the ability to make fair decisions! 5 

72:2 Then he will judge 6  your people fairly,

and your oppressed ones 7  equitably.

72:3 The mountains will bring news of peace to the people,

and the hills will announce justice. 8 

72:4 He will defend 9  the oppressed among the people;

he will deliver 10  the children 11  of the poor

and crush the oppressor.

72:5 People will fear 12  you 13  as long as the sun and moon remain in the sky,

for generation after generation. 14 

72:6 He 15  will descend like rain on the mown grass, 16 

like showers that drench 17  the earth. 18 

72:7 During his days the godly will flourish; 19 

peace will prevail as long as the moon remains in the sky. 20
