Psalm of Solomon
O God, grant to the king your love for justice, and give righteousness to the king's son < Help the right people to judge rightly
Let the poor always receive fair treatment.
May the mountains give prosperity to all and the hills to be fruitful.
Help him defend the poor. , To rescue the children of the needy and to crush their oppressors.
Fear you while the sun shines
and while the moon remains in the sky; always!
May the king's rule have the freshness of the spring rains on the freshly cut grass,
of the showers that water the earth.
May all the righteous flourish during his reign
Let there be abundant prosperity until the moon ceases to exist.
Let it reign from sea to sea, and from the river Euphrates to the ends of the earth.
The nomads of the desert will bow before him; and his enemies shall fall to his feet. it is upon the dust.
The kings of the west, Tarsis and other distant lands, will pay tribute to you.
The eastern kings of Saba and Seba, will bring you gifts. All kings will bow down to him, and all nations will serve him.
Rescue the poor when they cry out,
help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. He will redeem them from oppression and violence, because their lives are precious to him.

Praise his glorious name forever!
Let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen!
