Bible: Psalm 72:8-17
and from the Euphrates River 3 to the ends of the earth!
72:9 Before him the coastlands 4 will bow down,
and his enemies will lick the dust. 5
72:10 The kings of Tarshish 6 and the coastlands will offer gifts;
72:11 All kings will bow down to him;
all nations will serve him.
72:12 For he will rescue the needy 9 when they cry out for help,
and the oppressed 10 who have no defender.
72:13 He will take pity 11 on the poor and needy;
the lives of the needy he will save.
72:14 From harm and violence he will defend them; 12
he will value their lives. 13
May they continually pray for him!
May they pronounce blessings on him all day long! 16
72:17 May his fame endure! 29
May his dynasty last as long as the sun remains in the sky! 30
May they use his name when they formulate their blessings! 31
May all nations consider him to be favored by God! 32
