Psalms 72
Glory and Universality of the Messiah’s Reign
A Psalm #Ps. 127:titleof Solomon.
1Give the king Your judgments, O God,
And Your righteousness to the king’s Son.
2#(Is. 9:7; 11:2–5; 32:1)He will judge Your people with righteousness,
And Your poor with justice.
3#Ps. 85:10The mountains will bring peace to the people,
And the little hills, by righteousness.
4#Is. 11:4He will bring justice to the poor of the people;
He will save the children of the needy,
And will break in pieces the oppressor.
5They shall fear You
#Ps. 72:7, 17; 89:36As long as the sun and moon endure,
Throughout all generations.
6#Deut. 32:2; 2 Sam. 23:4; Hos. 6:3He shall come down like rain upon the grass before mowing,
Like showers that water the earth.
7In His days the righteous shall flourish,
#Is. 2:4And abundance of peace,
Until the moon is no more.
8#Ex. 23:31; (Is. 9:6; Zech. 9:10)He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
And from the River to the ends of the earth.
9#Ps. 74:14; Is. 23:13Those who dwell in the wilderness will bow before Him,
#Is. 49:23; Mic. 7:17And His enemies will lick the dust.
10#1 Kin. 10:2; 2 Chr. 9:21The kings of Tarshish and of the isles
Will bring presents;
The kings of Sheba and Seba
Will offer gifts.
11#Is. 49:23Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him;
All nations shall serve Him.
12For He #Job 29:12will deliver the needy when he cries,
The poor also, and him who has no helper.
13He will spare the poor and needy,
And will save the souls of the needy.
14He will redeem their life from oppression and violence;
And #1 Sam. 26:21; (Ps. 116:15)precious shall be their blood in His sight.
15And He shall live;
And the gold of #Is. 60:6Sheba will be given to Him;
Prayer also will be made for Him continually,
And daily He shall be praised.
16There will be an abundance of grain in the earth,
On the top of the mountains;
Its fruit shall wave like Lebanon;
#1 Kin. 4:20And those of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
17#(Ps. 89:36)His name shall endure forever;
His name shall continue as long as the sun.
And #(Gen. 12:3)men shall be blessed in Him;
#Luke 1:48All nations shall call Him blessed.
18#1 Chr. 29:10Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel,
#Ex. 15:11; Job 5:9Who only does wondrous things!
19And #(Neh. 9:5)blessed be His glorious name forever!
#Num. 14:21; Hab. 2:14And let the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen and Amen.
20The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
